Case Study: State of New Mexico
The city of Las Vegas, NM is embracing community forest management and technology to address needs such as increasing planting, growing and sustaining canopy, and inadequate funding for maintenance and qualified tree care personnel. The City is leveraging assistance from the State of New Mexico and USDA Forest Service, and communicating the needs of its urban forest with TreePlotter™ INVENTORY software. They are driving home these issues with data collection on mobile devices and instant visualization of the urban forest composition with prebuilt charts and graphs. With convenient web-based access and a map-based platform, TreePlotter™ INVENTORY has proven to be an invaluable outreach and education tool to communicate urban forest needs. With data collected faster over larger areas, the City and local university then collaborated to develop an urban forest management plan.
