If you notice people wandering around the streets, measuring trees and inputting something into an iPad, they are members and volunteers with the Jamestown Tree Committee taking inventory of the trees that are on municipal land and within 10 feet of public streets. The purpose of the inventory is to provide the Town with a good idea of what trees are within the Town jurisdiction and their condition. The resulting database will allow the Town to discern where more trees can be planted on public property and areas of concern. It also will provide a sense of the diversity within our canopy and what species should be purchased for availability in the Tree Nursery. This is an ongoing project. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help, please send us an email.
