Abstract

The Street Tree Inventory Project is an ongoing effort to collect distribution and life history data on the street trees in municipalities from the mid-Willamette Valley in western Oregon. One of the primary objectives of the project is to provide these municipalities with information regarding the identity and maintenance needs of their street trees. Thus far, data has been collected from trees occurring in planter strips (i.e., the landscaped areas between the street edge and sidewalk) and city parks in Monmouth, Oregon. These data included tree location, species name, physical condition, and management concerns. Following collection, data were entered into a MS Excel spreadsheet and then linked to a web-based mapping system created using Google Maps and JavaScripts. This web-based mapping system will ultimately provide interactive, online access to these data for a broad audience. Additional project outcomes will include a web-based, interactive plant identification key and species descriptions of the street trees found in each respective city.
