Tree Identification and Information
For best results, tree monitoring should occur at least twice a year. Once in early Spring and once in late Autumn. This will make sure you are monitoring the tree at different points in its growing cycle. During each monitoring time, recording a tree's location, scientific name, type, height, diameter and general appearance is very important. Trees grow and change over time and the measurements and observations you are making help record the history of a tree's growth. This monitoring will help you recognize and track changes to a tree's overall health and make it easier for you to make management decisions that are in the best interest of the tree.
