Neighborhood trees were surveyed in 3 neighborhoods of
New York City
during the summer of 2002 by Citizen Pruners. Detailed information
about 322 trees was collected and the trees were
mapped, in some cases using hand-held computers like the one shown. Some new data has been added to this, much of it
collected by children for the trees surrounding their schools.
Using OASIS's maps you can see where these trees
are located and identify each tree to get detailed information about
it, such as species and size. The Forest Service and SUNY used this
tree data in their analysis to determine the environmental and
economic benefits of trees in each of the 3 neighborhoods surveyed.

collected and calculated for each tree.
Maps were also prepared to show the best places to plant new trees.
