Jacksonville, FL – Jacksonville Tree Service Experts has launched a new urban forest citizen science program to empower local communities and raise awareness about the importance of trees and their role in the environment. The initiative, led by CEO Beatrice Lindesy, will allow citizens in the greater Jacksonville area to become involved in research that will ultimately benefit their community and the environment.
"We are committed to supporting our local communities and increasing awareness of the vital roles that forests and trees play in our environment," said Lindesy. "Our urban forest citizen science program is part of this commitment. We believe that educating citizens about trees and engaging them in meaningful data collection projects can positively impact our environment and help us make more informed decisions about how we manage our urban forests."
The program will involve collecting data from volunteers in the Jacksonville area, including measurements such as tree size and species identification. This data will be used to develop baseline information about the city's urban forests, which can then be used to inform decision-making related to urban forestry management. Additionally, the data will be shared with the public to increase engagement and understanding of the importance of urban forests.

In addition to collecting data, the program will provide participants with educational opportunities. Through workshops and other outreach activities, participants will learn about the benefits of trees, how to identify different species, and how to measure tree characteristics such as height and diameter. The goal is to create a more knowledgeable and engaged community regarding urban forestry.
"We believe that involving citizens in research can promote better understanding and appreciation of our urban forests," said Lindesy. "By providing educational resources and opportunities for collaboration, we can foster an environment where citizens feel empowered to take action and make positive changes for their environment."
The program is part of Jacksonville Tree Service Experts' ongoing efforts to support and enhance local communities in Northeast Florida. In addition to its urban forest citizen science program, the company provides tree planting, tree pruning, tree removal, and other tree care services. These services are designed to improve the health and appearance of public spaces while reducing maintenance costs for municipalities and other organizations.

"Through our urban forest citizen science program, we hope to inspire a new generation of citizens passionate about protecting our environment and creating a healthier future for our communities."
