My City’s Trees is an application that enables anyone to access Urban Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data and produce custom analyses and reports. Currently, My City’s Trees includes information for Austin and Houston, Texas. A key feature of Urban FIA is remeasurement of select locations every year, and this data will be added as it becomes available. Urban FIA is active in other states, and data from other cities will be added to this application in the future.

URBAN FOREST INVENTORY AND ANALYSIS (URBAN FIA)


 US Forest Service Logo

The U.S. Forest Service’s Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program provides critical information needed to assess the status, trends, and sustainability of the Nation’s forests. A system of forest measurement field plots across the United States serves as the program’s foundation. In 2014, the Forest Service extended its annual forest data collection, analysis, and reporting to urban areas.

New Urban FIA methods and protocols were developed and are now in use to produce estimates of the quality, health, composition, and benefits of urban trees and forests. The Urban FIA program complements existing regional and local efforts to provide a cohesive picture of urban forest conditions in the U.S.

Texas A&M Forest Service (TFS) partners with the U.S. Forest Service to inventory the state’s forests in a program called Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA). The data collected by our highly-trained foresters and resource specialists provides information on the health, extent, condition, and trends of the state’s forests and woodlands. The information produced through the FIA program finds application in many settings, including natural resource management, industry, policy, conservation, education, and research.

TFS is excited to bring the vigor and credibility of the FIA program to urban forests, where 85 percent of Texans live. Through Urban FIA and applications such as My City’s Trees, TFS provides accurate information about urban trees to strengthen urban forest management and tree advocacy efforts.
