It would be worthwhile talking to the tree officers at Liverpool City
Council who carried out just such an exercise a few years ago to establish
the value of their street tree population.

Do any of the LA's, or others,  out there have any information or
experience of accounting for trees on an asset register and if so the
methodology of the system used?

I know about the pro's and con's of Helliwell (and Halliwell come to that)
but to apply that to a huge tree stock
does not seem like such a good idea.

We have been asked the question `Why does the Council's Asset Management
Plan make no mention of trees, which need managing just as much as
buildings and infrastructure?'   Without a City-wide survey, it also begs
the question where do you start?

Is there also a protocol / accounting convention for estimating the
population of trees in a given area?

Surely someone somewhere in this community has faced a similar problem.

So many questions, so little knowledge! (well speaking for myself anyway)
