Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2017-2018 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Ramsey. Ramsey is an exurban community with an abundance of natural resources. Despite its wealth of trees, the City has no record of its urban forest. To assess the locations, species and conditions of City-owned trees, the City of Ramsey partnered with students in FNRM 5501: Urban Forest Management: Managing Greenspaces for People, taught by Dr. Gary Johnson. Students worked with Ramsey city planner Chris Anderson to establish a sampling protocol, and to teach the protocol to local volunteers. Data collection took place over several weeks as volunteers were available. The students’ final report, presentation, and training packet are available.
Report, presentation, and training packet completed by students enrolled in FNRM 5501: Urban Forest Management, taught by Dr. Gary Johnson in spring 2018.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance community resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
