The Boston Globe shares insights into the data contained in the Camridge Tree Map. For instance, "[the] most common are maple, honeylocust, and oak, with a healthy scattering of ornamental fruit and berry trees." The article includes a very colorful map, among other infographics, of the "density of blossoms" around the city.
"The map doesn’t include every tree in the city: It skips the many in private yards and on university property. But what remains is an intriguing snapshot of how a bird, a bee, or an ambitious grain of pollen might experience the city."
The database, released to the public in April, follows a seven-year effort by the Cambridge Department of Public Works.
