This April, approximately 58 different trees were evaluated and affixed with a "tree price tag" as part of a campaign across the City to raise awareness about the many environmental and economic benefits of urban trees. This program is a joint effort with Roanoke Stormwater, Roanoke Parks and Recreation, Roanoke Stormwater and the Roanoke Tree Stewards.
The tree benefits were calculated with i-Tree tools from iTreetools.org (a free set of tools specifically for quantifying tree benefits and values based on research from the USDA Forest Service). The Roanoke Tree Stewards assisted in measuring and calculating each value for each tree. Want to see all of the signs across the City?
