The Forest Service is making it easier than ever for homeowners and urban planners to discover the economic and ecological value of their trees, with today’s release of the free mobile software tool i-Tree 2014.
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.
