tree survey

A survey in which trees are inspected. There is no clear-cut distinction between a tree survey and a tree inspection, although a tree survey usually refers collectively to the trees in a survey area of whatever size. The kind of information recorded, its level of detail and the nature of the record varies with the reason for the survey, the size, condition and number of trees to be surveyed and the nature and usage of the survey area.
