Study Afforestation of City Cemeteries to Reach City Climate Goals
Of the ~4125 acres of cemetery in NYC, <20% is canopy covered. Some cemeteries reach 30-40% canopy while others 1-5%. The disparity suggests trees and graves aren't mutually exclusive. I propose the city seek to initiate a culture shift via a program to survey, coordinate, implement and possibly provide ongoing support for tree plantings in cemeteries. I calculate a canopy goal of 60% would yield 170K new Trees (That's 6 Prospect Parks!)
I know I'd rather be buried under a tree.
