Have you wanted to complete a street tree inventory in your community, but have been a bit nervous about trying to learn new software? Choosing the correct tools to use for data collection, archiving and analysis can be a daunting task. Well, over the past few years, the i-Tree Streets tool has undergone many modifications to make it simple to install on your computer, easy to use in the field for collecting information and even easier to analyze the data and produce results that can be used to tell a story about the street trees in your community.
A special upcoming 3-hour Internet-based instructional session,”i-Tree Streets: Keeping it Simple, Affordable and Useful” is scheduled for April 4, 2012 from 9:00 AM – Noon (Eastern). This session, presented in cooperation with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation will feature an opportunity to focus on the completion of a simple, easily implementable street tree inventory in your community. The workshop will feature Mollie Freilicher, MA Department of Conservation and Recreation, Anne Cumming of the USDA Forest Service and Dave Bloniarz, USDA Forest Service. For those in the New England area, the internet session will be followed by an In-Person Networking Session in Springfield, Massachusetts from Noon-1:30 PM (Eastern) that will be held at Forest Park.
PRE-REGISTRATION for both the Internet session and the In-Person Network Event is required, in order to provide the best experience for attendees.
