Tree Inventory

Trees Atlanta has planted over 160,000 trees across metro Atlanta since our first year of planting in 1985. In that first year, we planted 46 trees in downtown Atlanta; now, Trees Atlanta plants over 7,000 new trees each year. We actively care for the trees we plant for two years (and sometimes longer). We also care for trees located in spaces where our forest restoration work is being done.

This means that every year, tens of thousands of trees are under our care. Doing this work as efficently and effectively as possible requires managing a massive amount of information, so we rely on ArcGIS in our toolbox of resources, along with shovels, buckets, and saws.

We are continuously working to enhance the information and technology to share this information with the public. We’d love to hear from you if you have suggestions for our consideration.

Tips on Using this Interactive Map

  • Click on the map and drag to view different georgraphic areas.
  • Zoom in or out using the plus and minus buttons in the upper left hand corner (or the scroll tool on your mouse while in the map).
  • Type in an address using the search box in the upper right corner and update the view to a specific location.
  • Zoom in to view discrete tree points. Points may be overlapped if many trees are in the same geographic zone; zoom in closer.
  • View the tree identification by clicking on a tree point (in the example below, the green tree point on Lytle Avenue represents a Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei). The cultivar type is also included when available.
  • The numbers in parenthesis after the scientific name indicate the Planting Season in which the tree was planted (in this example, this tree was planted during the program year 2008-2009).
  • The neighborhood name of the location of the tree is provided. In locations outside the City of Atlanta, the neighborhood name may be represented as the city name only.
  • Green dots represent trees under our care. Gray dots represent locations where trees are confirmed as dead or have been removed.
  • This data set includes inconsistent records for trees planted prior to 1995.
