Tree Inventory underway (again!)

French Quarter Block by Block is a project by community organizer and writer Dar Wolnik to catelogue details and share history for every block of the French Quarter. In 2011, friends and colleagues began to help with her Tree Inventory: mapping trees in the public space of the French Quarter including identification of native or unique trees with the end goal of a paper map and a GPS site of all of the trees. Tree inventories such as these assist neighbors, arborists and planners with new tree planting projects and with city wide tree canopy assessments.
The project was shelved temporarily after the initial identification and will be remapped in 2013. The Quarter is broken into four quadrants on the map and each block will be walked within each quadrant to re-check the initial map and to circle any native or unique trees for later identification.
