1 2010 Minnesota Community Preparedness Workshops

2 Components Ash Tree Inventory and Assessment Ash Tree Removals Wood Utilization Tree Replacement Insecticide Treatments

3 Ash Tree Inventory and Assessment Importance In order to manage a resource you need to know: -What you have -Where its is -What condition is it in

4 Ash Tree Inventory and Assessment Types Complete Sample Quick survey of just ash

5 Types Ash Tree Inventory and Assessment Stratified random sampling: grid streets, curved streets, and downtown Maximum 2,300 trees to sample Estimated 120 person-hours in the field

6 Assessment Determine the condition and the potential nuisance of a tree Ash Tree Inventory and Assessment Can be used to determine pre- emptive removal of: Targeted trees Near walkways Near play areas Competing with other desirable trees Future construction planning Risk Trees
