Once again this summer, Neighbourwoods volunteers and summer staff will be working in the field inspecting trees for Centre Wellington’s annual tree inventory!
This year, which marks the 12th year of the program, a few changes are being adopted. First, the data collection process is being streamlined. Crews are recording each tree’s species, location, height, crown width , diameter and documenting just three indicators of health. This new system means that Neighbourwood’s records can be added into the Township’s growing database which will help the management of our urban forest. Teams will only be inventorying trees on public land – parks, boulevards and front lawns up to the property line. And, of course COVID protocol will be strictly followed.
This program is made possible thanks to funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program.
