GROUP: public plantings (pp)
DEFINITION: public, commercial, & other institutionally managed ornamental plantings: in parks, along linear transportation features (roads, canals etc), around non-residential buildings, institution-managed cemeteries, & other areas, may have (<10m) turfgrass patches. To be considered a public planting, there must be no evidence of private land ownership or management, such as vegetation management associated with houses or enclosed by private fences, edging, hedgerows, or walls. USE = Ornamental: this GROUP does NOT include >10m plantings planned for harvest or extraction, though it may include areas of agriculture or vegetation harvest, when this is NOT the plan of the institution managing the feature.
