Point style edit, Point size 5.00, set in Absolute Units.
When you are drawing the tree use the radius of 15’ (15 divided by 2 equals 7.5’)
Draw the tree full size; you will scale it down later in the instructions. Draw on layer “0” then make it a block. This way when you insert the block on the tree remove or tree save layer, the block will take the color of that layer.

2. Thank you! Car 5858 for the tree advice....

3. Hello Car 5858:
Do I zoom in as much as possible and draw my tree to a scale of 7.5 units for radius...I have my insertion scale of my drawing units set to inches...should it be set to feet...or would my units for my tree be 7.5 units (feet) = to 90 units (inches)....

4. Hello Car 5858:

I think I got it..the decimal units can denote any value, in this case a decimal unit is one foot; therefore 7.5 is egual to 7.5 feet...thankyou for you patience...I am sure to call on them again...this site is a life saver...thanks

5. Hello I am working on the Olsen Village. Can someone tell me what layer the the first 2 roads as to be on. (i.e. SW 85th Ave and SW Village Lane) When I look at others drawings that are posted on this site, they appear cyan. I am assuming the layer is boundary (with pantom lines - cyan) and then the sidewalks layer is also cyan so they kind of look the same. Also what layer is the 1' buffer between the right of way and the beginning of the sidewalk drawn on. Thanks

6. I have drawn the 1' buffer with the sidewalk layer, the 6' sidewalk on the sidewalk layer, and the 3' parking strip on the curb layer....Is this correct???? Thanks again!

7. Also is the 3' parking area offset from the right of way or offset from the sidewalk??

8. Message: In the Oleson Village, I drew the first 2 roads on the boundary layer. I then offset the 1' buffer on the outside of the roads and placed this line on the sidewalk layer. Then I offset the 6' sidewalk to the outside off the buffer line. Then I offset the 3' parking area from the inside sidewalk line and placed this line onto the curb layer....I am really hoping this is right...it is confusing in the instructions as it sounds like you have to jump the curb to park....
Your drawing is correct...Actually the "parking strip" is just a small grassy area next to the sidewalk (in a typical neighborhood where homeowners might place their trash cans for pickup as an example).

9. Typically a city will have a 1' offset from the street/property line to the back of the sidewalk. Sidewalk widths vary from city to city and from the residential to commercial districts. In your case PF calls for a 6' wide walk leaving 3' then from the edge of walk to the face of curb. Funny they do not mention a width for the curb which is normally 6" in most cities although in rare instances I've even seen 8" wide granite curbs. I think the use of the term "3' parking area" is quite misleading and should be changed.

I have been placing the trees and have used the list command and I have all my trees placed properly. However, Tree S44 coordinates have to been wrong as when I input them the tree is placed out in space. The coordinates that I have are: 1420986.34,786332.48 Does someone know the right coordinates for this tree. Thanks
