Management of invasive trees in the right-of-way


Lakeville, MN

The Issue

The City wanted to remove invasive species in the right-of-way. They wanted the vendor to use a city-supplied GIS parcel layer in the field in order to follow field crews to make a call on whether the tree is on a parcel (private property owner’s issue) or in the right-of-way.

Desired Outcome

Use of a web map solution to make sure only invasive trees in the public right-of-way were managed.

Our Solution

We loaded the City’s parcel layer into an ESRI ArcGIS OnLine map project and exported that map to a web app that can be used on a phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. The app can access the device’s GPS, turn various layers on and off, switch between a variety of basemaps, measure distances, print, and share.
