2020 Tree Inventory is Underway!
Once again this summer,
Neighbourwoods volunteers and summer staff will be working in the field
inspecting trees for Centre Wellingtonâ€™s annual tree
This year, which marks the
12th year of the program, a few changes are being
adopted.Â First, the data collection process is being
streamlined.Â Crews are recording each treeâ€™s species, location,
height, crown width , diameter and documenting just three indicators of
health.Â This new system means that Neighbourwoodâ€™s records can be
added into the Townshipâ€™s growing database which will help the management
of our urban forest.Â 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
madepossible thanks to funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program.
