Description

This project documented individual trees on campus, using a GPS device and collecting tree details into the ArcGIS data layer.  The previous Tree Inventory was last updated in 2006, and it included trees that had subsequently been removed and it was missing new trees that have been planted. Through this project, the Tree Inventory was updated to include all and only existing trees on campus.

The Facilities & Services Tree Surgeons and Grounds crew continue to maintain the Tree Inventory.  They are also going to work with the Aboretum and the University Landscape Architect to incorporate the Arboetum tree inventory.
