The tree inventory provides detailed information on the tree species located on campus. This information will be useful to the Plant Operations Department in maintaining the campus urban forest. It will aid in the creation of a land-use strategy, which will provide a more sustainable tree community. A user-friendly database will then be the basis for a regularly up-dated inventory.
At the same time, we hope that the information will help us to discover the attributes that trees bring to the campus. We will research social (aesthetics, educational, spiritual), ecological (microclimate, habitat, pollution control), and economic functions of the urban forest on campus.
