Project Overview

In 2011, Providence College hired Bartlett Tree Experts to create an in-depth inventory, status, and management plan for the over 2000 trees on the campus. As part of the inventory process, the team of arborists conducted a visual inspection of each tree from the ground to conduct a comprehensive  evaluation of each tree for condition and risk of failure.   The goal was to evaluate the impact of wood decay in stems and buttress roots that show potential for failure and to determine presence and condition of the root system. As part of the management plan, various trees on the campus were identified and for remediation, maintenance, or removal.

Tree Inventory and Management

July 11, 2012 -Based on the evaluation described in the Tree Inventory and Management Plan, 34 trees have been identified for immediate removal due to the extent of the damage and the danger these trees represent should they fall on their own.  Work has begun to remove the identified trees and when advisable replace with new trees. This work will continue over the summer months
