Burlingame Urban Forest Resource Analysis/Tree Inventory

Main Info

As a continuation of their long-standing, proactive approach to managing the urban forest, the City of Burlingame contracted with Davey Resource Group (DRG) in 2011 to inventory publicly owned trees on streets and right-of-ways, in parks, and at City facilities. The inventory, conducted by a team of arborists, included a brief inspection of each tree. In addition to the geographic location, the arborist also recorded the species, size, condition, and current maintenance needs of each tree. The inventory identified 14,783 trees and 911 available planting sites. Using the collected information in conjunction with i-Tree benefitcost modeling software, DRG developed a detailed and quantified analysis of the current structure, function, and value of this public tree resource.
