Sustainable Jersey City (SJC) is kicking off Jersey City’s first ever Tree Mapping Census. Our city’s tree canopy is disappearing at an alarming rate. To restore the canopy, SJC is calling on you to help record existing trees, because we can’t manage what we don’t measure!
SJC will train you to become a citizen scientist, equip you with our OpenTreeMap Smartphone App and connect you with our neighborhood captains who will guide you through the tree inventory process to record GPS location of trees, tree metrics, tree health data and tree species ID photos.
Together we can collect the data needed to manage the restoration of Jersey City Tree Canopy and improve the quality of life for us all.
