Canopy roads are roads that are shaded by tree canopy. Trees near the roadways grow out over the roads, creating a canopy with their branches and leaves. The canopy shades the road from direct sunlight, providing a cool reprieve from the heat. And they make for a more scenic drive as the canopy creates a “tunnel of trees” through which one drives. Canopy roads are typically country roads, but they may also be urban roads, such as some of the canopy roads in Tallahassee, Florida.
