Las Vegas Urban Tree Canopy Analysis Study
The Las Vegas Urban Tree Canopy Study, is a project funded by the USFS as a competitive grant that was awarded to the Nevada Division of Forestry. A heat island data set has been developed for the Las Vegas Valley and a tree inventory is in progress of public trees in Clark County. The city of Henderson was awarded a grant to do some more indepth analysis and determine possible planting areas. Below are the summary reports for the Las Vegas Urban Canopy Analysis Study based on landcover and a generalized zoning layer. The analysis includes the project area (see map), and then is broken into the following entities: the city of Las Vegas, the city of Henderson, the city of North Las Vegas and the unincorporated areas of Clark County that fall within the project area. There is a report on the Urban Heat Island Index.
