Distribution of urban tree canopies is generally not uniform. Multiple variables have been shown to be associated with tree canopy cover, including violence, health, and general well-being. This study examined the relationship between tree cover and intentional deaths. Suicide, homicide, and tree cover data were examined by ZIP code for Louisville, Kentucky. Results showed fewer suicides and homicides occurred near tree cover. We observed that low tree canopy is associated with higher rates of intentional human death.
