Tree Planting Inventory

NIRPC is using geographic information system (GIS) mapping to help collect and share tree planting data. Communities and public organizations that have been awarded trees through the Community Tree Grant Program are collecting important information such as planting location, tree species, nursery of tree origin, and planting year using a mobile app on their smartphones. Once the data has been collected in the field, NIRPC uploads it to create the interactive map you can explore below. The data is particularly useful in supporting ongoing urban forestry efforts such as:  

  • Community public tree inventories and urban forest management plans
  • Urban forestry research
  • Public education and outreach
  • CommuniTree program planning
