Geographic Information Systems allow users to view and analyze multiple layers of data in one platform.

Using geographic information systems software we are cataloging and mapping as many trees as we can find in the Roaring Fork Valley. 

Information being collected includes:

  • type of tree
  • age
  • fruit characteristics
  • soil type
  • aspect
  • elevation
  • latitude and longitude
  • public or private property

With this data we will be able to plan our pruning and harvesting routes, conduct food shed analysis and even estimate valley wide fruit production capacity. 

If you would like to contribute information on a tree please contact Jimmy Dula at heritagefruit@gmail.com.

To view the trees we have identified so far be sure to have Google Earth installed. Then download the KMZ file below and upload it into Google Earth.
