Since 2000, the Woodland Tree Foundation has been planting shade trees along streets, in parks and schools and private property, such as the yards of residences. During the past three years 600 trees have been planted on private property. The Foundation wants to document these trees as part of a Geographic Information System. Among the attributes that we would like to document are tree location, aspect, distance from buildings, variety, health, etc.
Volunteers are needed to bike, hike or drive through Woodland neighborhoods with an address list of trees, document tree attributes using GPS, forms and photography.
Depending on number of volunteers, opportunity could take part of a day to several days.
Data gathered will be used to measure success of tree planting for granting organizations, adaptive management of our tree planting, and to support future tree planting grant applications, particularly with respect to direct and indirect greenhouse gas reduction.
