I have this idea that I've been wanting to do ever since we bought the house but I haven't had time to do it yet. I'd like to draw a map of our property including all of the trees and ID each one. Is this something you typically do? I have all of the trees in the actual yard IDed because they are spaced out more but there are a lot of areas I haven't taken the time to figure out. I'm not necessarily sure what the benefits would be besides knowing where there might be juglone and just knowing how many different types of trees we have. Could you use this for anything else?
As far as the mapping goes I'd like to try to map out the whole area either way. I took a stab at it with Google Maps and AutoCAD but drawing curves proved to be a challenge and I ended up using lots of straight lines instead. LOL! Is there a program you'd recommend to draw all of that out? And how do you measure everything out exactly?
