GOSHEN — A $9,200 study will help Goshen determine which trees may be best to use as it pursues a goal of 45 percent tree canopy by 2045.

The Goshen Board of Works on Monday voted to contract with Aiden Friesen to analyze the city’s current tree inventory, look for ways those trees might be vulnerable to climate change and find which species might be valuable to Goshen in the future. It’s meant to help the city meet a goal of more than doubling its tree canopy in 25 years, a goal adopted last spring.
