Abstract

The study aims to develop a new framework of tree assessment that is suitable for Malaysia’s tropical urban trees. A focus group discussion (FGD) method was conducted with Malaysian experts regarding the criteria needed to assess a tree's condition starting from the juvenile stage. Found that 92% of the participants agree with the preliminary framework presented. Additional components were added to the preliminary framework based on the data collected. The study could increase the relevant organizations' knowledge of managing urban trees and decrease the deterioration and decline of urban trees in Malaysia.

Keywords: hazardous trees; tree monitoring; urban forestry, tree assessment
