How Urban Forestry is Using Tree Tech

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Mon, Jul, 14, 2014 @ 17:07 PM

Millions of Americans have access to the latest technology in the palms of their hands. Smartphone applications, or “apps,” not only play games and connect to the web–they can also increase awareness and engagement in managing urban forests.

Cities and organizations can make use of these apps to recruit and educate volunteers, to receive tree status updates from people on the street, to lead interactive guided tours, and to help residents identify trees in their neighborhoods. Technology is revolutionizing the connection between people and trees, and new ones are being released all the time.
