Tree inventoryDocumentation

What is the exact extent of my green areas? How are the conditions of urban parks and playgrounds? What is the health status of trees and when is the next assessment planned? Up to date information and correct documentation improves the safety and reduces management costs of green areas, allowing for a more precise planning and monitoring.

Management of green areas via web

R3 TREES is a web platform, where all operators access a single, centralized application. The software is intuitive and allows to record all assets of green areas and their attributes, like trees, playgrounds, lawns, flower beds, hard assets, etc. The user can update all information from the office or directly in the field using a tablet pc or smartphone. All stakeholders access one web application, with different access profiles according to the user's role.

Tree inventory and VTA analysis

R3 TREES is a great tool for carrying out a tree inventory and tree assessments, according to the country-specific legislation (Law No. 10/2013 in Italy, ÖNorm L 1125 and L 1122 in Austria, FLL-Standard in Germany, ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) protocol). Based on the characteristics of the tree and the recorded defects, it is assigned a risk class, and a control date. Every tree can have associated photos, documents, and over time various visual and instrumental assessments. This way you are always informed on the situation of each tree.

Playgrounds and inspections

R3 TREES manages all information about playgrounds and recreational tools, including geographical location and main attributes of each tool. The software focuses on the safety aspect, the management of maintenance interventions and periodic inspections with the ability to program a work schedule and share it with local operators.

Maintenance activities

R3 TREES lets you plan maintenance activities for each element in the green areas and assign them to different operators. For each activity you can check the schedule and the state of implementation, creating a progress report. R3 TREES Mobile allows to access the planned activities in the field on a smartphone with the possibility to close them at the site and document the closed job with a picture.

Non compliance reports

The app R3 TREES Mobile allows to record non-conformities in the field. A customizable workflow allows you then to create automatically a maintenance job based on the report and monitor the implementation. In the same manner you can document situations where you will need to intervene, making sure that the problem is recorded and will be proposed automatically for scheduling once you are back in office.

Citizen information

R3 TREES can also convey certain information to citizens, such as the inventory of trees or play areas, through a simple and intuitive interactive web portal. You can also activate a smartphone app (iPhone, Android and Windows) that allows citizens to report troubling situations in the green areas. The messages are then managed in R3 TREES to ensure they are followed up, and the citizen is informed automatically on the actions taken.

icona che indica le faq, è un punto di domanda

Can I load an inventory of existing trees?

Yes. There are procedures to import from both Excel and Shapefile. Excel files must be structured so as to contain precise fields for the transfer, some of which are mandatory (e.g. area, plant number, geographical coordinates) and others are optional (e.g., taxonomy, diameter and tree height)

What types of files can be imported into R3 TREES?

To load the inventory of a green area, you can import a Shapefile. Shapefile is a GIS format that contains both geometric data (polygons, lines or points) and the corresponding attributes and can be created or modified with different types of GIS software. To import these files, they must conform to the technical specifications of R3 TREES.

can I get assistance while using R3 TREES?

It is possible to send an email to R3 GIS employees will contact the customer to discuss the problem and find a solution. During the first year after purchasing the software, this service is part of the guarantee. In the following years, it can be purchased in the framework of a maintenance contract

Can I collect data in the field using mobile devices?

R3 TREES can be used in the field with a tablet, accessing the software via the internet. This can be of particular interest for the inventory of plants or other elements. In this case, you need a 3G or 4G internet connection. Given the low accuracy of the tablet's GPS, the positioning accuracy is low. You can however connect via bluetooth an external GPS with higher accuracy, or use professional survey tools and then import the data into R3 TREES in Shapefile format

Can I improve the accuracy of the location detected by the Tablet?

Yes, by connecting an external GPS via Bluetooth to the Tablet or Smartphone. For greater accuracy in positioning, it is necessary to use high-performance GPS receivers, R3 GIS is also collaborating with research institutions to find ways rto improve positioning without the need to buy expensive equipment.

Can I test R3 TREES before buying it?

A demo of R3 TREES is available online. To access the demo, send a request to with your data. You will be contacted by R3 GIS staff who will explain you the software and create a temporary access to the demo for 15 days. It is important to first understand how R3 TREES works before testing it yourself on the demo.

Can data be exported?

Data can be exported from R3 TREES in various formats, depending on the type of data: locality list (Excel), inventory of trees (Excel, Shape, DXF), play areas and surfaces (Excel, Shape, DXF), work orders (Excel), tree lists and their VTA data sheets (Excel, Shape), recreational tools list and related inspections (Excel, Shape). In addition all this information can be printed in PDF format

Can the files generated in a CAD software be imported into R3 TREES?

DXF files cannot be imported directly. You must first convert them into Shape format in accordance with the specifications and then import them. There are several programs that allow you to convert them, some of which are free

Can I perform statistical analysis on urban green spaces?

R3 TREES has a function that allows you to calculate statistics on all assets or on specific locations. You can also make comparisons between the situation at two different dates. R3 TREES records all the changes on the database and can then calculate the difference between the situation on two distinct dates. The results of the statistics can be exported in Excel Tables.

Can different users have different profiles on R3 TREES?

Yes. Each operator interacts according to his tasks. R3 TREES provides for different user profiles that allow you to access different functions. These profiles can be configured according to the needs of the customer

Is there a manual?

Yes, there is a manual, which you can access within the application
