A Microcomputer-Based Park Tree Inventory System    (View PDF)

E. Gregory McPherson, James McCarter and Fred Baker

Abstract: Many communities have special parks that contain trees which receive as much or more care than do most street trees. Planning and managing vegetation in these areas is complex and can benefit from use of computerized tree inventory systems. This report outlines how park trees can be located and inventoried using a coordinate grid system. It also describes a computer program for park tree inventories designed to operate on a microcomputer, and field tested at the State Arboretum of Utah in Logan.
