How to do the survey

To take part in the urban tree survey and send us information that is useful for scientific research, just follow these instructions.

1. Get ready

2. Survey a tree

  • Identify each tree with the help of the identification key.
  • Note the date and each tree's name, site and location on a survey form. 
  • If you can, also note the size or girth of each tree's trunk, an estimate of its height and if it has flowers or fruit, and take some photos.

3. Send us your results

Remember you can:

Please tell us about any unusual trees you find using the tree ID forum.

And that's it! Thank you for your contribution. Every tree you survey will make the scientific research we undertake more relevant, meaningful and useful.
