Urban Forestry

Using state-of-the-art computer software, Tree Dimensions gathers data that enables municipalities to formulate tree-asset information into systems that facilitate better management of urban forests.

Analysis of canopy cover using ArcGIS is a powerful urban forestry planning tool.

Gathering tree data

Tree data can be gathered, for example, by mapping trees using GIS and GPS tools to determine:

  • the percentage of canopy cover existing within municipalities
  • the quality of the canopy cover within municipalities.

Mapping individual trees using GIS facilitates efficient tree management.
