Inventory of City of Lewes Street & Park Trees Completed


In February 2014, the City of Lewes hired the Bartlett Inventory Solution (BIS) Team from Bartlett Trees Experts to conduct an inventory of street and park trees for the City. They identified 781 trees or groupings of trees that included 76 species. They also identified 262 planting opportunities throughout the city. The attributes that were collected included tree latitude and longitude, size, age and condition class, and a visual assessment of tree structure, health and vigor.
A management plan was developed that includes recommendations of risk evaluations and removal of appropriate trees, as well as recommendations for pruning, soil care, and pest management treatments to promote safety, health, appearance and longevity. BIS mapped the trees using GPS hardware and Geographic Information System (GIS) software. The City of Lewes manages this inventory through BIS’ ArborScope Landscape Management Application tool, which indicates when trees have been maintained, removed or planted.
ArborScope hyperlink is now available through the City’s website for public viewing of the tree inventory by using the available satellite map views and indicated filter options, which will change periodically based on more inventory information.
