Emerald Necklace Tree Management Plan

In consultation with the Emerald Necklace Conservancy’s public partners, the Olmsted Tree Society advisors hired Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture who inventoried more than 7,000 trees and 200 acres of woodland; developed accessible and comprehensive mapping using the latest Geographic Information System technology; and developed the Emerald Necklace Tree Management Plan including implementation strategies, timelines and cost estimates for the work that needs to be done.
