Auburn Urban Forestry Tree Inventory

Auburn, California

Foothill Associates’ arborists and GIS specialists wrote a successful grant to California ReLeaf for funding for the Auburn Area Urban Forestry Group’s Caring for Auburn’s Trees project. The project involved an inventory of the City of Auburn’s urban trees conducted by local high school students. Working with certified arborists, students located and recorded tree species, size, and health. The goal was to increase community awareness and appreciation for the role of trees in urban landscapes, provide valuable data for future management of this resource, and offer high school students hands-on experience.
