Mapping no planting zones in GIS

Riverside forestry management includes a tree inventory, tree
management, and a tree planting program. The village’s GIS (Geographic
Information System) supports all of these efforts as a medium for
displaying and analyzing that information. The village forester
identified an additional management strategy that is of interest to the
local Landscape Advisory Commission and that is delineation of no
planting zones.

These areas were provided to the GIS staff and created in the system
making it easy for village personnel to view the existing tree inventory
against the planned open spaces. Without a doubt, having a geographic
representation of this plan will expedite future planting efforts and
the open spaces will accentuate the unique landscape of Riverside.
