These Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board maps show the boulevard trees for each neighborhood in Minneapolis. They were created to show the location of ash trees as part of educating the public about the Emerald Ash Borer infestation.

I enabled data driven pages, refined the labeling rules, inserted a location map, and adjusted the layout.
