How to plot fruit trees in your area:

Having a street directory is useful to accurately plot down 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. So all you need to do is write down the address of the fruit tree i.e. Outside of house 72 Blyth St and then you can simply find the house and tree on Google maps later.

Using google maps you can easily plot down the fruit trees in your area.

Creating a feral fruit tree map is easy. Here are the basic steps:   

  1. View Feral fruit trees Melbourne in a larger map.  
  2. Sign in to your google account if you haven’t already.
  3. Click Edit in the top left hand corner
  4.  Zoom into the area you want to plot.           
  5.   Use the icons in the top left corner of the map. These include:
            Select button Selection tool. Use this to drag the map and select placemarks..
            Placemark button Placemark tool. Use this to plot fruit trees.                         

This will edit the overall map of fruit trees in Melbourne and plot the new trees you have added for everyone to view.

*Remember to add the name of the tree ie. (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, in front of church etc’

Alternatively you can send me the address plus any descriptive features of where the tree is located via email and I can plot them down myself. -axelinaustralia@yahoo.com
