Hoboken Street Tree Inventory | 09/08

Friday, October 24, 2008 | Author: Steve Fahmie | [email protected]

There are 3,073 street trees in Hoboken.

Summary Volunteers Steve Fahmie and Joan Abel counted a total of 3,073 street trees in Hoboken during the month of September 2008. All trees planted within the bounds of public sidewalks situated adjacent to streets were counted. Trees in parks and on private property were not counted. Between March 2002 and September 2008 the number of street trees in Hoboken increased by 30% on a comparable bases (including only the streets counted in both surveys). During that period, Washington Street, Hudson Street, and the streets west of Clinton enjoyed the most pronounced increase. Between January ‘05 and July ‘08, the ratio of new trees associated with construction plans to issued planting permits was 681:258 (2.6:1). Permits for the removal of 147 trees were issued during the same period. With the exception of Washington St, which benefited from a city tree planting project, the majority of the increase was associated with new construction. Recommendations In light of recent economic trends, increases in street trees related to new construction will decline substantially for the foreseeable future. In order to continue growing the number of Hoboken street trees, citizen and City initiatives will need to pick up the slack. To that end, the author recommends the following:

1) Complete an inventory of stressed trees & empty tree pits. 2) Alleviate stress conditions to insure existing trees survive. 3) Fill empty tree pits. 4) Establish block by block targets for the desired number of street trees. Establish a

program to reach those targets within five years. Creative partnerships will play a role in fulfilling these recommendations. Partnering opportunities may exist with state and county agencies, non profits, carbon offset firms such as TerraPass, and companies such as Home Depot that have tree planting and/or community outreach initiatives.
