ABSTRACT: An inventory of the urban forest could be the basis for many planning functions in a municipality. Learning the species, age and conditions of the trees can help predict maintenance needs and opportunities for new tree plantings. This project is about planning an inventory for Norwalk, Connecticut, where trained volunteers will collect within a 37.5 foot radius of one to two hundred randomly-distributed points. These data will be entered into the i-Tree tool ECO program. Some of the outputs for ECO analyses are: species condition and distribution, carbon sequestration and storage, pollutant removal, pest risk analysis. GIS is used in the planning and data will be collected on mobile devices using an app specific to this program.
