Tree Inventory

Sycamore tree

The Department of Public Works has completed a comprehensive tree inventory of over 19,000 public trees.  The inventory contains the number of trees and empty tree wells, tree size, species, recent plantings, and vulnerability to invasive insects.  This information will enable the Parks and Urban Forestry Division to better manage and assess the City's urban forestry. The tree inventory can be viewed online through our GIS system. Click here to view instructions on how to use the Cambridge City Viewer on the GIS page.

As a result of the inventory, an extensive 2011 tree inventory report(pdf) is available aimed at sharing detailed information about the City's trees with the public, so as to foster stewardship among local groups, neighborhood associations, and schools.  

A neighborhood analysis is also available.  To see information about the trees in your neighborhood, click on one of the links below: (all pdfs)
