  • Selecting the type of inventory for your needs,
  • Inventory best practices,
  • Available free and paid tools,
  • Hands-on field practice, and
  • Analysis, use, and visualization of data

Tree Inventory Workshop: Tools and Best Practices will be Tuesday, July 17, from 9 a.m. until Noon Central Time
at the Purdue Northwest Meeting Facility (in the NIRPC building), in Portage, Indiana.

Space is limited and registration is required. Register here.

The workshop presenter will be Lindsay Darling, Chicago Region Trees Initiative GIS and Data Specialist
MS, Northwestern University; BS, Indiana University

Lindsay Darling uses mapping to better understand how trees influence urban landscapes. She heads data analysis and mapping for the Chicago Region Trees Initiative, and is working on a project to identify tree species across the seven-county Chicago Region. She also works to turn these findings into products - including interactive maps, flyers and presentations - that can be used by forest managers, tree stewards, and the broader public. Lindsay also works to identify where tree plantings could have the biggest impact. Photo courtesy of Keep Indianapolis Beautiful.
