According to a 2012 study, Wisconsin has an estimated 42.8 million urban trees, with a replacement value of $19.3 billion. Trees in and immediately surrounding Wisconsin's urban areas provide annual energy savings to residents of $78.9 million, remove $47.6 million worth of air pollution and store $507 million worth of carbon. Based on analysis of Landsat imagery from 2001, the average tree cover in urban or community areas of Wisconsin is about 19.8 percent, with 16.2 percent impervious surface cover and 23.6 percent of the total green space covered by tree canopy cover.

In continued recognition of the health, social, environmental, aesthetic and monetary value of the urban forest, the State of Wisconsin is implementing the Wisconsin Urban Forest Assessment program (WisUFA), a continuous statewide urban forest monitoring program.
