Location data is driven primarily by the amount of detail needed. If the purpose of the inventory is to have a general idea about the tree population within a park or certain area of a community, identifying that tree within the park or community may be sufficient. The location usually is identified sufficiently so that an individual tree may be found by another person. This detail can be provided by GPS coordinates or through construction of a map when the inventory is completed or with other detailed location methods. A detailed location must be recorded if follow-up evaluation or maintenance of an individual tree is one of the purposes of conducting the inventory.
