Latent Value


This slab of a catalpa tree is embellished with a repeating leaf pattern that illustrates the makeup of Pittsburgh’s tree landscape:

  • The roughly 41% rendered in drawn detail represents our current tree canopy
  • The 25% blacked out represents buildings, streets, and other impervious surfaces
  • The 33% in 22k gold represents potential space for additional trees (like our yards)
