Location (zip)geocoded_column_zipgeocoded_column_zipText
Site IDsite_idsite_idNumberAn identification number for the site where the tree is located.
Air Quality Benefits ($)air_quality_benefitsair_quality_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of benefits that a tree provides by increasing air quality through absorption of gaseous pollutants, intercepting particulates, releasing oxygen, transpiring water, shading surfaces, lowering air temperatures and reducing ozone levels.
SidesidesideTextThe location of the tree on the parcel.
Common NamecommoncommonTextThe common name of the tree species
DBHdbhdbhNumberDiameter at breast height, or DBH, is a standard method of expressing the diameter of the trunk or bole of a standing tree (in inches) measured at least 4.5 feet above ground level.
Energy Benefits ($)energy_benefitsenergy_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of benefits that a tree provides by modifying climate and conserving building energy use.
StreetstreetstreetTextThe street name where the tree is located.
Pollutants Saved (in lbs.)pollutants_savedpollutants_savedTextThe total amount of pollutants saved (in pounds) by a tree through absorbing gaseous pollutants, intercepting particulates, and reducing ozone levels.
SitesitesiteNumberSite designated number when multiple trees exist for same location.
Therms Savedtherms_savedtherms_savedTextThe amount of therms of heat energy saved by reducing wind speeds.
Leaf Surface Area (in sq. ft.)leaf_surface_arealeaf_surface_areaTextThe measure of the total area of all leaf surface on a tree (in square feet).
Greenhouse CO2 Benefits ($)greenhouse_co2_benefitsgreenhouse_co2_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of benefits that a tree provides by reducing atmospheric greenhouse gases.
EditingeditingeditingTextThe organization responsible for tree maintenance.
Botanical NamebotanicalbotanicalTextThe species of the tree
Council Districtcouncil_districtcouncil_districtTextThe council district where the tree is located.
Address NumberaddressaddressNumberThe house number associated with the location of the tree.
LatitudelatitudelatitudeNumberThe latitude where the tree is located.
Stormwater Benefits ($)stormwater_benefitsstormwater_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of stormwater benefits that a tree provides by reducing the amount of runoff and pollutant loading in receiving waters.
LongitudelongitudelongitudeNumberThe longitude where the tree is located.
CO2 Avoided (in lbs.)co2_avoidedco2_avoidedTextThe amount of carbon dioxide (in pounds) that isn't released into the atmosphere as a result of the tree reducing the demand for heating and air conditioning of nearby buildings.
Stormwater Gallons Savedstormwater_gallons_savedstormwater_gallons_savedNumberThe total amount of gallons of water saved by a tree as a result of intercepting and storing rainfall in leaves and branches, increasing soil infiltration through root growth and decomposition, reducing soil erosion by reducing the impact of rain on barren surfaces, and reducing soil moisture thereby increasing the soil's capacity to store rainfall.
Property Benefits ($)property_benefitsproperty_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of increased property value through the increased curb appeal of having a tree in front of a property. Research has shown that buyers are willing to pay more for homes with ample trees.
Park Namepark_namepark_nameTextThe park where the tree is located. Trees not in parks will have a value of 0.
kWh Savedkwh_savedkwh_savedTextThe amount of kilowatt hours of energy saved by shading and transpiration (converting liquid water to water vapor which cools the environment).
Total Yearly Eco Benefits ($)total_yearly_eco_benefitstotal_yearly_eco_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of benefits that a tree provides. This is a combination of greenhouse gas benefits, water benefits, energy benefits, air quality benefits, and property benefits.
CO2 Sequestered (in lbs.)co2_sequesteredco2_sequesteredTextThe amount of carbon dioxide (in pounds) sequestered by a tree as it grows.
