Carson City tree inventory plan will cost $25,000

Nevada Appeal staff report

An urban tree inventory management plan will be done in Carson City for nearly $25,000.

The inventory management plan for the Parks and Recreation Department’s Open Space unit and the Public Works Department will be handled by Dale Carlon Consulting of Sparks. Roger Moellendorf, Parks and Recreation Department director, said the cost will be handled via a 75/25 percentage split by the Nevada Division of Forestry, which will pick up the larger share, and city government.

The plan will provide a citywide inventory of all public trees located along street rights-of-way, city parks, city-owned areas that are landscaped, the Eagle Valley Golf Course complex, and Lone Mountain Cemetery, according to a city government news release.

The inventory plan will allow city departments to keep an updated and accurate work record of all tree maintenance and related pertinent data. Inventory and related work will be done this summer with the consultant’s employees checking the inventory along streets, in parks or elsewhere on city land.
