64. Use Abandoned Lots as Nursery Space

As cities look to both improve their tree canopy and activate vacant lots, consideration should be given to using those lots to grow trees. Larger trees are more expensive and while that may be a marginal amount compared to the cost of most infrastructure projects, in order to significantly increase the urban canopy, this could be a viable cost savings measure.  It also helps utilize lots that need to be flexible in their use to accommodate potential development  opportunities.
