Abstract

Western Oregon University (WOU), situated in the mid-Willamette Valley of western Oregon, provides the setting for an ongoing Campus Tree Project that involves inventorying and monitoring all the trees on WOU’s grounds. Primary objectives of the project are to provide the campus’s landscape maintenance personnel and members of the WOU community with information regarding the identity (scientific and common names) and maintenance needs of WOU’s trees. Data are being collected by WOU students, staff, and faculty, along with community volunteers, for each campus tree. These data include location, species name, circumference, height, health, maintenance concerns (e.g., conflict with power lines) and specimen photographs, among others. Following field data collection, the information will be entered into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, and then displayed via a web-based mapping application using a Google Maps interface (i.e., a campus tree map).
