An American non-profit conservation organization, American Forests released a free public tool called Tree Equity Score (TES) to assess the environmental and health advantages of greenery. TES evaluates the canopy cover of an area by comparing the demographic and socio-economic characteristics. A score of 100 represents tree equity. This tool is helping in reducing disparities and assisting decision-makers in rehabilitating low-scoring neighbourhoods.
