Mapping Street Trees with the Washington Square Tree Counters

One training and one mapping event down, one mapping event to go.

At the end of last Saturday's training event, Washington Square Tree Counters had mapped 14.9% of our census area. By the end of Monday's mapping event, we had mapped 42.5% of our census area and counted 570 trees! Thank you to TreesCount! Team and the volunteers who are made this happen! During Monday's mapping event, NYC Parks staff Justin and Keenan mapped the street trees surrounding the park.

We have high hopes for tomorrow night's mapping event. We would be pleasantly surprised to reach 100% of goal so we are talking about hosting another mapping event. Stay tuned.
