Smart cities and related ICT are among the most popular topics in IT and urban management research. Smart city advocates focus on ICT applications that enhance the comfort level and business efficiency of urban life. However, other aspects of such cities, including their ecological and social dimensions, have attracted limited research attention. This article describes a tree management information system that intelligently cultivates trees, which are part of the ecological assets of a smart city. This system was developed to ensure that people and trees can coexist harmoniously in an urban environment.
