Description

Trees play an important role in cleaning our air, soil and water, on top of providing economical and aesthetic benefits. On Susquehanna University’s campus, the Ginkgo trees act as important part of campus lore, and many more act as memorials to past students and events. We have been using GIS technology to catalog trees by location, species, dimensions, important maintenance needs, and other noteworthy characteristics. So far, We have surveyed the whole of the academic campus for a tally of over 600 trees, and we are currently expanding to survey the dormitories. This tree data will be used to spot vulnerability to invasive species, determine the need for tree removal and replacements, and help to develop a forest management plan.
