How to plot fruit trees in your area:
Having a street directory is useful to accurately plot the trees in your area, but all you really need is a pen and paper. Google Maps will allow you to zoom in until you see the shape of private blocks with the street numbers, as well as small alleyways that aren’t always shown on other maps. All you need to do is write down the address of the fruit tree e.g. “Outside of house, 72 Blyth St”, and then you can add the location of the tree on Google Maps later.
Adding a feral fruit tree to the map is easy. Here are the basic steps:
- View Feral Fruit Trees in a larger map.
- Sign in to your Google account if you haven’t already.
- Click Edit in the top left hand corner
- Zoom into the area you want to plot.
- Use the icons in the top left corner of the map. These include:
Selection tool. Use this to drag the map and select placemarks..
Placemark tool. Use this to plot fruit trees.
This will edit the map, and let you plot the new trees you have added for everyone to view.
-Also remember to add the name of the tree (pomegranate, apple etc.) plus any descriptive features which may aid in finding the tree, for example “in front of house number 36, hanging over fence”, “to the right of the church etc”
Alternatively you can send the address plus any descriptive features of where the tree is located via email, and we’ll plot them for you. email@example.com
