Inventory data collection
Tree inventories, assessments, and appraisals are the foundation of an effective tree management program. Tree inventories help vegetation managers identify current and potential problems and plan for budgets, removals, pruning, planting, and other maintenance requirements. A tree inventory is a means by which an urban forester can acquire and retain pertinent information about the condition and value of the community’s tree resources. The inventory data supplies objective and quantitative information that can be used to document estimates for funding, personnel, and equipment. Using and regularly updating the tree inventory moves the urban forestry program into proactive management. CFC offers accurate and consistent tree assessments to meet the goals of your program.
