    There is an unequal distribution of urban trees. More affluent areas are known to have an increased tree canopy cover compared to surrounding low-income areas. The communities with tree canopies that require the most attention tend to be areas with relatively higher rates of unemployment. These areas experiencing nature deficit can be solved by local workforces pursuing careers in tree care. Tree Equity™: Career Pathways aims to pair tree care companies with able workers in those underserved areas. Tree Equity has teamed up with the Vibrant Cities lab to create a career action guide to help build a thriving workplace that sustains economic strength and vibrant, green communities. The Career Pathways Action Guide can be found here, on the Vibrant Cities Lab website.
