Urban Forest Maps

Urban Forest Maps are evolving as tree wikis come on line. Tree wikis are a new tool to help map tree resources in urban areas. They provide an inventory put together by urban residents that include tree species, location, tree diameter, age, photographs and other information relating to the urban forest.


Below are some of the current urban forest tree maps based on wikis around the country:
