seminar, The creative use of tree inventories in managing the urban forest
This seminar will have an international outlook, emphasizing how inventories can be conducted in a systematic way using the most meaningful parameters and how inventories are being used around the world. This includes how inventories are being used as a tool in community outreach, species selection and planning of the urban forest. The presentation is based on the research being conducted at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in cooperation with international partners from e.g. New Zealand, Denmark and the United States, and the presenters’ experience of inventorying large trees stands with multiple values e.g. cultural, social, biological and economic and how these can be used to create management plans. After the seminar, participants will have knowledge of a wide range of uses for their urban tree inventories and how these can be conducted and updated in a systematic way.
