Vermonters are engaged in the care and management of trees and forests in public places and public right-of-ways. VT UCF's municipal tree inventory tools help these staff and volunteers to identify, prioritize, and take action on the management needs found through "boots on the ground" surveys. Our Vermont Tree Inventory Guide highlights the benefits of trees and types of tree inventories appropriate for communities throughout Vermont.
Our program-supported municipal tree inventory tools utilize the ArcGIS Field Maps and ArcGIS Survey 123 applications. They are conducted on mobile devices (smartphones or cell-enabled tablets) and are supported by the GIS team at the Vermont Agency of Digital Resources. Over 24,000 data points have now been entered by 34 Vermont cities and towns and two non-profit organizations. Communities that use the ArcGIS Field Maps and ArcGIS Survey 123 applications also have the option of viewing and managing their data online through a web map (address and login details supplied by request to Joanne Garton, Technical Assistance Coordinator for VT UCF, email@example.com).
Since 2013, the majority of VT UCF's tree inventory support of Vermont communities has fallen under two initiatives: municipal tree inventories and roadside ash tree inventories.
We support municipal tree inventories on a request basis (first come, first served). If you are interested in assistance, please contact Joanne Garton, Technical Assistance Coordinator for VT UCF, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
