Since it  was first released in 2006, the free tools found in the i-Tree suite have made  it possible for communities, non-profit organizations, consultants and students  to analyze individual trees, parcels, neighborhoods, cities and entire states.  The software has also become a global ambassador for the Forest Service – the  world’s largest forest research organization – where it is put to work in more  than 100 countries.   

“Urban  forests are the lifelines of America’s cities, and we know that in part because  of i-Tree,” said U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. “i-Tree helps us better  understand how urban forests benefit the health of our cities and the people  who live in them.”

 What’s  new in 2014? Two of i-Tree’s most popular tools, Design and Canopy, have been  expanded with new features and another tool, Hydro,has been redesigned.
