The Syracuse Urban Forest Master Plan is one of the most comprehensive urban forest assessments ever developed for a city. This report combines a high-resolution digital urban cover map with field vegetation sampling data from all land uses, a 100-percent street-tree inventory, a survey of city residents regarding desirable and undesirable tree characteristics and functions, and a survey of local tree experts on the best trees for various city conditions. These data provide a wealth of information related to the urban forest resource and its management in Syracuse in the 21st century.
