A Method for Characterizing Urban Forest Composition and Structure for Landscape Architects and Urban Planners    (View PDF)

Joe R. McBride

Abstract: A method combining numeric data collection with the preparation of street tree cross-sections and plans, based on surveys of 33 urban forests around the world, is reviewed. The combination can provide design professionals with graphic information on urban forest structure not collected by more traditional methods for urban forest inventories.

Keywords: Composition; planting space; species frequency; street cross-section; street plan; structure; tree spacing.
