Abstract

The Monmouth Street Tree Inventory Project is an ongoing endeavor to collect distribution and life history data on the street trees in Monmouth, Oregon. One of the primary objectives of the project is to provide the City of Monmouth with information regarding the identity and maintenance needs of these trees. Data was collected from trees occurring in planter strips throughout the city. These data included tree location, species name, and health and management concerns. Following collection, the data were entered into a MS Excel spreadsheet and were linked to a web-based geographic information system (GIS) specifically created for this project. The GIS will ultimately provide online access to these data for a broad audience both within Monmouth and beyond. Additional project outcomes will include a web-based interactive plant identification key and species descriptions of the street trees found in Monmouth.
