Upcoming e-Learning Webcasts
Please join us for a comprehensive web-based instructional series that will introduce the latest tools in the i-Tree software suite, as well as bring you up to date on the improvements that have been made to the i-Tree collection of inventory, analysis and reporting tools for urban and community forests. i-Tree is a state-of-the-art, peer-reviewed software suite from the USDA Forest Service that provides urban forestry analysis and benefits assessment tools.
The i-Tree Tools help communities of all sizes to strengthen their urban forest management and advocacy efforts by quantifying the structure of community trees and the environmental services that trees provide. The online training seminar series will take place monthly, with live, interactive sessions led by members of the i-Tree development team and other instructors. This web-based series will introduce i-Tree to you, help you understand its value as an important tool in your urban forest management toolkit and provide you with hands-on demonstrations related to the installation, use and reporting components of the software suite.

Ever Feel Haunted By Hydrology Models?!? Maybe i-Tree Hydro Can Help You!
Join us on Thursday, October 31 at 1:00 pm EDT for some Halloween tricks AND treats!! i-Tree has been building on its Hydro application and incorporating it into the broadening i-Tree Research Suite.
Log-on to hear an introduction to Hydro+, a new part of the i-Tree Research Suite and the home of i-Tree’s continued hydrology modeling R&D. This webinar will also introduce green infrastructure features now available in the latest version of Hydro+ (that’s the TREAT)! Please note that this model operates in a C++ environment and requires a command-line interface to use (that’s the trick), and we’ll have the researchers and programmers along to help us clear up any cobwebs.
i-Tree allows any community to conduct and analyze a sample, or complete street tree inventory, data, and make estimates of the structure, function, and value of these components of your urban forest. Baseline data can be used to effectively manage the resource, develop policy and set priorities. Looking at information collected on existing street trees, this software allows managers to evaluate current benefits, costs, and management needs.
We hope that this will be a very informative session, and provide you with some practical insights into how you can use i-Tree in your work or community. Please plan to join us if you are able.
The program begins at 1:00 PM (Eastern), on Thursday, October 31, 2019
