Know Your City’s Trees! June Contest

Where in South Boston are these trees? These two trees seem to be dead or dying. While the tree in the left background is in full bloom, the two foreground trees still have no leaves. This picture was taken in early May, long after leaves and buds appeared across South Boston.

In the city and in natural ecosystems, trees die for various reasons. It could have to do with hydration, trauma, tree disease, or other factors. Southie Trees, a project of TNB, has applied for a grant to track urban tree outcomes using open-source software called iTree.

Tech Networks of Boston supports the preservation of mature urban trees, which make neighborhoods more pleasant, filter our air and water, and moderate temperatures.  We hope you’ll use this contest as a fun way to get to know your city’s trees!

  1. Hi,

    Its true that trees in urban area dies because of various reasons. The other factor is that urban development demolish many trees, what I suggest is to plan a urban tree landscaping this helps to preserve trees. What do you think? We must share our thoughts so we can save our natural resources.
