This project aims to facilitate the use of i-Tree Eco in the UK. i-Tree Eco is a software application which is used to quantify the structure and environmental effects of urban trees and calculate their value to society. Data from an i-Tree Eco survey can be used for making effective resource management decisions, developing policy and setting priorities for a town’s trees and greenspaces.
Forest Research have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Treeconomics and the Arboricultural Association to deliver the “i-Tree UK” project, which has four main objectives:
Together, we are working with the i-Tree Cooperative to develop full functionality of i-Tree Eco within the UK and facilitate its use and uptake by UK users.
The i-Tree Cooperative comprises the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service, Davey Tree Expert Company, International Society of Arboriculture, Society of Municipal Arborists, Arbor Day Foundation, and Casey Trees.
The programme started in 2013 and is ongoing.
Our work is focussed around:
Research to understand the contribution that urban trees make with respect to: the resilience of current and planned urban tree stocks to climate change, their role in regulating temperatures, and water management in urban areas
