    Tree Inventories in Mexico

    Summary

    Since 1987, we have been applying tree inventories in Mexico—at first for research purposes, and then for research and practical management purposes. Several differences exist between the amount of data, the budget to collect the information, and the method of numbering the trees. This presentation will discuss the different types of tree inventories and their results, including some comparisons made 17 years later with the same trees in the same sites. Results obtained applying UFORE and i-Tree inventories in several boroughs also will be presented, dealing with air pollution removal and carbon storage by trees.
