- Campus Tree Inventory
- Increase Agroforestry on Campus
- Increase Number of Trees
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 environmental benefits included in the tree inventory are directly derived from iTree, with the help of Davey Research Group who completed the survey on campus.
The Facilities & Services Tree Surgeons and Grounds crew continue to maintain the Tree Inventory. They are also going to work with the Arboretum and the University Landscape Architect to incorporate the Arboretum tree inventory.
