Document Description
A tree inventory focused in the South Bay community of Sand Diego will be performed. The city will collect and enter tree inventory data into an existing citywide database already in place from an existing urban forest management grant. A tree map and urban forest focus related data sets for public use will be updated. The city will identify opportunities and prioritize tree planting projects to improve and manage its urban forest canopy. 200 new trees will be planted and maintained as part of this grant project. The city will use watering and maintenance guidelines developed by the San Diego Regional Urban Forestry Council. The city will also leverage its partnership with Tree San Diego, a local nonprofit group, to implement community education programs and increase community tree stewardship and care.
