Canopy is an important medium for physiological activities of plant communities. The study of canopy structure is important for explaining and estimating the growth vigor and ecological benefits of plant communities. The more common community types in Wuhan garden were selected as research objects, and the canopy structure of plant community was quantitatively studied based on GIS technology. The results show that there are some differences between the canopy structure characteristics of different tree species: Gap Fraction varies from 6.5% to 39.5%; leaf area index ranges from 1.50 to 3.65.
