Austin trees – there’s an app for that
For the first time ever, a census for trees is available in a new, easy-to-use application developed by Texas A&M Forest Service.
The Urban Forest Inventory and Analysis of trees in Austin, Texas, is presented graphically in My City’s Trees.
My City’s Trees enables civic leaders, community planners, elected officials and anyone with access to the Internet, to learn about Austin’s urban forest, and explore Urban FIA data by land cover, city growth, watersheds and eco-regions.
“This free, publicly accessible web tool allows community members to work together to better understand, conserve and protect the trees where they live, work and play,” said Texas A&M Forest Service Urban and Community Forestry Program Coordinator Paul Johnson. “They also can use this information as a starting point when creating long-range, community tree plans.”
My City’s Trees can be useful in defining urban forest management and tree health care options, allocating resources and prioritizing programs that will better protect community trees.
Accessible at http://mycitystrees.com, the web tool is free to use and provides community tree data that has not been readily available to the public before.
Texas A&M Forest Service is helping support communities with tools and resources to care for their trees and poses that no matter your question…trees are the answer.
