Abstract: Greenery at housing estates forms a large part of public green spaces in Slovak towns. It was usually planted without designing and its maintenance is also often neglected. Currently, it is necessary to solve many problems of green spaces at housing estates, such as poor general condition, high maintenance costs, poor design qualities or loss of green spaces due to an expanse of the static traffic (parking). The aim of this paper is to evaluate the results of the tree inventory conducted at the residential complex Párovce in Nitra, Slovakia. The tree inventory and the management programme for tree maintenance in the residential complex Párovce was conducted in 2013. The document was intended for an evidence of trees, the tree maintenance planning, issuing regulation of construction activities and planning of compensatory tree plantings. The tree inventory includes identification data, dendrometric values and quality assessment (landscape value of trees and vitality). Based on the tree assessment, proposals for tree maintenance were determined according to their priority. In the assessed area, there are 1,286 trees in total, represented by 73 species. The most common species are Acer pseudoplatanus L., Acer platanoides L. and Tilia cordata Mill.
