Sandusky Tree Inventory

Sandusky Tree Inventory

We often don’t think of trees along our streets as a “forest” but they actually serve as a vital part of our urban forest.

Trees not only provide shade and a place for the birds and squirrels to live they also provide quality of life improvements such as storm water control, crime reduction, and health benefits. In 2014 the District helped the City of Sandusky count, identify, measure, and assess over 6,000 trees found growing in the boulevard between the street and the sidewalk. The Erie County Community foundation assisted the projects with a grant to hire an intern for the data collection and analysis. The inventory has helped the City with their increased management efforts of their urban forest. Click here for the final presentation on the survey.
