If you want to increase the green cover in your locality, the first thing you should do is take stock of the trees that share space with you. The tree census is an important scientific, technical, and educational effort. The results enable us to characterize the tree population in terms of its structure, function, and value.
Trees are a very important part of our ecosystem and neighborhood. They provide a habitat for the variety of biodiversity found in the city. This includes several species of birds, butterflies, and small mammals. Tree Census Survey helps us to understand the trees that are around our neighborhood and creates awareness among people to preserve them better.
