Description: Codes for automatic data processing (ADP) are provided for hazardous tree failure data submitted on Report of Tree Failure forms. Definitions of data items and suggestions for interpreting ambiguously worded reports are also included. The manual is intended to insure the production of accurate and consistent punched ADP cards which are used in transfer of the data to magnetic tapes. The codes and card format specified are compatible with the computer processing and analysis programs provided in a user's guide, General Technical Report PSW-24. The guide covers use of the codes to specify the desired categories and ranges of data (species, diameters, organization, areas, times, conditions, etc.) to be included in analyses.
Key Words: hazard trees, hazard reduction, recreation areas, urban forestry, safety standards, data management, computer programs, coding
