Review of tree data collection protocols, tools, and datasets

This page describes one stage in the development of the Individual Tree Data Standard. Data variables were reviewed in existing data collection protocols, tree assessment tools, and urban tree datasets.

Data collection protocols

Tree assessment tools

Urban tree datasets

  • Belfast
  • Birmingham
  • Camden
  • Havant
  • Hayling Island
  • High Peak
  • Portsmouth
  • Test Valley

Research objectives

The aims of this stage were:

  • Collate all data variables in use in existing tree data collection protocols and tools
  • Investigate commonalities and differences between protocols and tools
  • Examine existing tree datasets to find the variables that were recorded

Findings and Recommendations

The 29 data fields identified in the protocols, tools and datasets, formed the basis for the first draft of the data standard. More details can be found in Review Summary spreadsheet in the Documents section, below.
