Bluesky Tree Map Protects Leicestershire Highways from Falling Trees
A unique tree mapping tool is being used by Leicestershire County Council as part of its programme to help keep its highways safe throughout the county. The local authority is responsible for all A and B roads throughout Leicestershire, including some busy, heavy traffic routes such as the A511 and the A606. The Council has turned to Leicestershire-based aerial survey and mapping company, Bluesky International, for insight and data into the county’s trees that sit alongside these key routes.
Bluesky’s National Tree Map (NTM) is a unique dataset that includes height, location, and canopy cover data for trees 3 metres and taller in England, Scotland, Wales, and the Republic of Ireland.
