This study estimated canopy interception by street trees along geographic and demographic gradients in Cincinnati. Using i-tree, interception ranged from 59.2 to 214.3 cubic meters per km of effective street length. The mean interception value used in the model was 6.7 cubic meter per tree, which the researchers note may overestimate runoff reduction.
