The inventory was conducted by Robert Wells, a certified arborist in NJ, in the spring of 2014 at the request of the Marquand Park Foundation. Each tree was identified by its common and Latin name, and its size, condition, and location in the park carefully recorded. The numbers on metal round tags on trees in the wooded area of the park correspond to the ID numbers in the inventory.
Each pin on the map represents a tree in the inventory. Click on an individual pin to get information about the tree.
Tree Signs and Descriptions
Many trees in the park have a name plate with their common or English as well as their scientific or Latin name. In the right-hand corner of each tree sign is also a QR code enabling you to link to a short description of some of the characteristics and the origin of the tree that you can read on your cell phone. To link to the QR Code, you will need to download a QR app to your cell phone. With this app you will be able to scan/make a picture of the QR code and then take the prescribed action to link to the page with the tree description. We have currently 50 trees with QR codes linking you to characteristics and secrets of some of our signature trees. More will follow in the future.
