The monitoring data demonstrates the positive changes gained through tree planting and active restoration of this important natural resource. This data is vital to determining the long term stewardship actions of these properties. The data sets collected and maintained by the Sacramento Tree Foundation are unique in that all nine years of the collection and analysis has been conducted by a single individual, Ms. Joni Ramirez. This allows for a high-level of consistency as well as a deeper understanding of how the landscapes and tree resources have changed over time.
Overall, the TNBC data demonstrate how organizational partnership, consistent land stewardship, and adaptive management produce positive results in the conservation of critically important lands such as the wetlands and riparian forests of the Natomas Basin.
