Abstract

Field monitoring of urban trees is essential to learning how urban forests change over time. Many arborists and urban forest managers worldwide seek to understand how their tree systems are faring in terms of growth, health, and mortality. How successful is an urban tree planting program with respect to mortality and survival? Has the tree species composition or total number of trees changed across a city or neighborhood? How much have the trees themselves grown? Long-term data collection can provide valuable information for urban forestry practitioners and researchers interested in these questions.
