We will work in teams of two and depending upon how many volunteers arrive at the timeslot, the team will be allocated a number of trees to audit. Once the amount of trees is complete you are free to go. Please make sure you have kept records of how many trees and then email me the numbers broken down according to total number audited, how many dead, how many dying, how many infested, how many okay.

The audit comprises opening the Tree Survey App, taking two photos of the infested trees (including dead & dying) and uploading the info as requested to Tree Survey. Write down the numbers of dead trees, dying trees, infested trees, okay trees. You mark the tree with the spray paint according to its status.

The colours will be: Black for dead tree; Red for dying tree, Yellow for infested & requiring monitoring, and Green for not infested.
