Tree canopy coverage, exposure to acute air pollution, and school disadvantage levels have all been associated with student academic proficiency. However, little research has examined the interaction of these factors. Our research aims to address this gap utilizing Generalized Estimating Equations. Our results indicate that increasing tree canopy coverage is associated with improvements to student academic performance, with high canopy cover having a protective effect against pollution exposure.
