City Of Aitkin, Minnesota

DRG conducted a tree inventory and developed a management plan that will help the City of Aitkin better understand the maintenance needs of its urban forest.

Project Narrative

Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG) was contracted by the City of Aitkin, Minnesota to conduct a tree inventory and management plan as part of Aitkin’s comprehensive tree care program. The results of this project will help Aitkin better understand the composition, structure, and maintenance needs of its urban forest, allocate resources, develop risk management strategies, and promote the ecosystem benefits the city’s trees provide to the local community.

Tree Inventory

The project is a GIS-based inventory of maintained trees, found along public rights-of-way and in public parks and properties. The inventory consists of DRG’s urban foresters locating each tree and recording the specified information about each tree in the inventory database. DRG bases our tree inventory on the ANSI A300 Part 9 standards.

Tree Management Plan

DRG uses Aitkin’s inventory data and industry standards and best management practices to develop a management plan upon completion of the inventory.

Additionally, the biggest challenge for this project was the lack of clear aerial imagery for the Rover software. The DRG arborist exceeded client expectations by cross-referencing Google Maps with the aerial imagery to make sure the data was as accurate as possible.
