Conducting a Community Tree Inventory
This publication provides an introduction to the community tree inventory. Individuals who may be interested in a community tree inventory include mayors, city council officials, urban planners, urban foresters, Master Gardeners, and residents who desire to improve their community through natural resource management. When addressing the community tree inventory, it is important to remember that community forests include urban parks and woodlands, street and yard trees, vacant lots, river and coastal natural areas, wetlands, and shelter belts of trees found in and around cities, suburbs, and rural towns. These are dynamic ecosystems that increase the livability of communities—something most people value and want to improve.
