Urban Forest Resource Inventories
The Arizona Urban Tree Map (AZUTM) is part of the Urban Forest Resource Inventories (UFRI), a joint project of the Arizona State Forestry and USDA Forest Service.
The main goals of the project are to:
- compile existing urban forest inventory and resource information from communities, towns, and rural areas statewide;
- develop and implement a pilot project for gathering data in multiple Arizona communities; and
- develop and implement protocols and opportunities for community engagement and long-term urban forest sustainability.
The project goal is to develop an accessible tool that compiles statewide urban forest inventory information, including summary reports of the combined economic and environmental value of Arizona's urban forests. A baseline knowledge of Arizona's urban forests will enable Arizona State Forestry to identify where data and resource gaps exist, develop long-range goals for urban forests, compile statewide canopy cover information, and to provide regular and updated information for multiple needs.
