Site IDsite_idsite_idNumberAn identification number for the site where the tree is located.
Botanical Namebotanical_namebotanical_nameTextThe species of the tree
Common Namecommon_namecommon_nameTextThe common name of the tree species
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 diminishing the impact of rain on barren surfaces, and reducing soil moisture thereby increasing the soil's capacity to store rainfall.
Greenhouse CO2 Benefits ($)greenhouse_co2_benefitsgreenhouse_co2_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of benefits that a tree provides by reducing atmospheric greenhouse gases
CO2 Avoided (in lbs.)co2_avoided_in_lbsco2_avoided_in_lbsNumberThe amount of carbon dioxide (in pounds) that isn't released into the atmosphere as a result of a tree reducing the demand for heating and air conditioning of nearby buildings.
Park Namepark_namepark_nameTextThe park where the tree is located. Trees not in parks will have a value of 0.
AddressaddressaddressNumberThe house number associated with the location of the tree
DBHdbhdbhNumberDiameter at breast height, or DBH, is a standard method of expressing the diameter of the trunk or bole of a standing tree (in inches) measured at 4.5 feet above ground level.
Total Yearly Eco Benefits ($)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.
Pollutants Saved (in lbs.)pollutants_saved_in_lbspollutants_saved_in_lbsNumberThe total amount of pollutants saved (in pounds) by a tree through absorbing gaseous pollutants, intercepting particulates, and reducing ozone levels.
Air Quality Benefits ($)air_quality_benefitsair_quality_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of benefits that a tree provides by increasing air quality through absorption of gaseous pollutants, intercepting particulates, releasing oxygen, transpiring water, shading surfaces, lowering air temperatures and reducing ozone levels.
kWh Savedkwh_savedkwh_savedNumberThe amount of kilowatt hours of energy saved by shading and transpiration (converting liquid water to water vapor which cools the environment).
Energy Benefits ($)energy_benefitsenergy_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of benefits that a tree provides by modifying climate and conserving building energy use.
Leaf Surface Area (in sq. ft.)leaf_surface_area_in_sq_ftleaf_surface_area_in_sq_ftNumberThe measure of the total area of all leaf surface on a tree (in square feet)
Property Benefits ($)property_benefitsproperty_benefitsNumberThe total dollar amount of increased property value through the increased curb appeal of having a tree in front of a property. Research has shown that buyers are willing to pay more for homes with ample trees.
Location (city)geocoded_column_citygeocoded_column_cityText
SitesitesiteNumberSite designated number when multiple trees exist for same location.
Therms Savedtherms_savedtherms_savedNumberThe amount of therms of heat energy saved by reducing wind speeds.
CO2 Sequestered (in lbs.)co2_sequestered_in_lbsco2_sequestered_in_lbsNumberThe amount of carbon dioxide sequestered (in lbs.) by a tree as it grows.
Stormwater Benefits ($)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
StreetstreetstreetTextThe street name where the tree is located
