OpenTreeMap is the digital platform for treehuggers in the city. A collaborative system that culls and provides crowdsourced information about trees, OpenTreeMap outlines tree locations in the city and the role each tree plays in order to maximize their full potential.
The innovative platform is primarily used by municipalities to provide a comprehensive database of all that's green, in order to work out the care and management of existing trees and also decide where more trees are needed. 
Nature loving city dwellers can take part in OpenTreeMap - via the website, or using the tablet or smartphone apps.
Combining a genius mix of technology and community involvement, trees are finally finding their place on the map.
