Using GIS to map the oaks at Pleasant Valley Conservancy

The tree database that we have set up is useful for a lot of purposes, and as time permits I do various analyses with ArcGIS. The map below provides a summary of the distribution of each species of oak and separate maps for each species can be found here: Link to the oak distribution site

On the map here only trees >= 12 inches are shown. Also shown (in small yellow dots) is shagbark hickory, since that is a common associate with oaks in our area. There are a number of other tree species (hackberry, cherry, basswood, birch, etc.) but these are not shown in this map.

For maps showing locations of individual species of oak, go to this link.
