Pro-Tip: Select Legend to understand the symbols on the map. Select Info and a mapped point to see more about each project. 

Projects are mapped based on the best location defined by the City of Austin staff. Some projects may have multiple site locations while others don't lend themselves to an exact location (internships, tree inventories, tree distribution). Where projects aren't mappable points have been stacked along the right side of the map.

Tree planting is a priority for a healthy and resilient urban forest. It's an investment in our community's future forest. The Community Tree Priority Map has evaluated the lowest to highest priority areas for tree planting and urban forest investment. 
Analysis of tree planting programs over the past six years show that 64% of trees were distributed in our highest priority areas. 
The Community Tree Priority Map is organized into 5 categories: lowest, low, moderate, high, and highest priority. Categories are equally divided into Austin’s census tracks. The top three highest priority areas (moderate, high, highest) represent 60% of Austin's highest scoring census tracks. These highest priority areas of Austin make up approximately 54% of the total land area in Austin. Higher scores mean higher priority for trees and urban forest stewardship investment.

Looking Forward: Trees and Complete Communities

The Community Tree Preservation Division and the Corridor Project Office are partnering to get more trees in the ground along Austin streets. The goal of this initiative will be to plant 500 street trees above and beyond what is being funded by the 2016 Mobility Bond Corridor Program. Projects will be included in the Community Tree Report as they are completed.
