The goal of the proposed dissertation research is to investigate the contemporary agents and socioecological determinants of street tree distributions in urban residential neighborhoods in order to understand how household decisions and multi-scalar management agents shape the environment within the public-private space of the right-of-way.

Project Results / Publications:

  • City of Tampa Urban Ecological Analysis 1975-1996   Link

    Kyle Campbell and Shawn Landry

    The Urban Ecological Analysis quantified how Tampa's tree canopy has changed over time, modeled the effects of the forest on the local ecology, and assessed the economic impact of the forest.

  • City of Tampa Urban Ecological Analysis 2006-2007: Final Report to the City of Tampa, April 24, 2008   Link

    Andreu, Michael G., Melissa H. Friedman, Shawn M. Landry and Robert J. Northrop

    Through a collaborative effort that involved the University of Florida, the University of South Florida, and the Hillsborough County Extension, an extensive inventory of Tampa’s urban forest was undertaken and analyzed during 2007. The inventory provided baseline information on location, composition, structure, and health while the analysis determined ecological function and economic value.

  • A Report on the City of Tampa's Existing and Possible Urban Tree Canopy   Link

    Shawn M. Landry, Michael G. Andreu, Melissa H. Friedman and Robert J. Northrop

    The analysis of Tampa’s existing and possible urban tree canopy was completed as a follow-up to the City of Tampa Urban Ecological Analysis conducted in 2006-2007. Our goal was to leverage the high resolution geospatial datasets developed during the Urban Ecological Analysis to compute UTC metrics at the parcel level and summarize this information both by land use and by spatial distribution.
