The City of Richardson Tree Inventory project began in September 2008. The trees shown on this map are only those collected thus far, and the inventory will be continually updated as resources allow.

The City of Richardson recognizes its stewardship responsibilities to protect the environment and to enhance the character of the community and is fostering a tree inventory system on parks and City managed properties. This tree inventory, once completed, will be a vital tool in a strategic tree management program for the care and enhancement of this significant asset, our urban forest.

The benefits of trees are numerous beyond their natural beauty and welcome shade:

1.We enjoy having trees around us because trees make life more pleasant by giving us serenity, peacefulness, and tranquillity.

2.Our city is enriched by the way trees enhance our urban views, reduce glare and harsh reflections, align flowing pedestrian corridors and compliment the architecture of our urbanscape.

3.The urban forest alters the environment we live and work in by moderating the surrounding climate, improving our air quality, conserving water and providing wildlife habitat.

4.Trees have a definite economic value not only as landscape specimens but also through their strategic placement by lowering energy usage in residential, commercial and office structures.

As with any asset management program one needs to quantify the individual units to begin managing the whole. This urban forestry inventory will be one of the tools the City of Richardson Parks and Recreation Department will utilize in caring for and enhancing our urban forestry resource.
