Olmsted Tree Society Funded Projects
Since its founding in 2013 the Olmsted Tree Society has been an invaluable asset to the Emerald Necklace Conservancy by funding, as its first step, a conditions assessment and management plan of the trees and woodlands in the Emerald Necklace park system and mapping of the heritage trees (48” diameter or greater). The Olmsted Tree Management Plan, the Party in the Park’s 10th Anniversary Project, guides tree work done in the parks by the Conservancy in collaboration with its public partners. The plan assesses the condition of 7,000 trees in the parks and parkways and assists the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, Boston Park and Recreation, Brookline Parks and Open Space and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation in their funded initiatives to preserve and protect our trees.
