DescriptionA survey of published reports on urban park tree inventories in the United States and the United Kingdom reveal two types of inventories: (1) Tree Location Inventories and (2) Generalized Information Inventories. Tree location inventories permit managers to relocate specific park trees, along with providing individual tree characteristics and condition data. In contrast, generalized information inventories do not allow for specific tree relocation, and often use sampling procedures to obtain stand characteristics and condition information. Various methods and specific examples of the two inventory types are discussed with the purpose of helping the reader decide which methods are most useful.
