Talking Trees in Troy, New York
The City of Troy, New York is dedicated to building a thriving urban and community forest for a healthy and vibrant place to live, work, and play. The more than 10,000 City street and park trees throughout Troy are an asset that brings value and benefits to the community. This resource provides environmental benefits, adds to property values, and contributes to an enhanced quality of life for all of Troy’s residents.
The City of Troy invested in a collaborative planning process by contracting with PlanIT Geo™ to complete a comprehensive street and park tree inventory and Community Forest Management Plan.
This project was supported through funding provided by New York State’s Environmental Protection Fund, administered by the Urban and Community Forestry Program within the Department of Environmental Conservation’s Division of Lands and Forests. From May to August 2019, PlanIT Geo’s Certified Arborists conducted an inventory of over 7,000 street trees, nearly 3,000 park trees, and 3,500 potential planting sites using TreePlotter™ INVENTORY.
