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.
May 2023 E-LEARNING WEBCAST

What: Using i-Tree to Enhance Your Environmental Messaging and Advocacy
Join us, on May 24th at 1:00 PM (Eastern), for this informational session that will take a look at some of the ways that non-profit organizations, municipalities and others can work with i-Tree to incorporate ecosystem services into their environmental justice, sustainability, and operational planning. Environmental managers, public health organizations and agencies, and city planners can easily incorporate tree benefit assessments into their advocacy and policy endeavors both large and small, using the results of multiple analyses from programs within the i-Tree tool set.
If you are considering applying for funding via the Forest Service Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) for Urban and Community Forestry (UCF), why not consider using i-Tree to strengthen your proposal. i-Tree tools can help you to support many aspects of your application by helping you quantify aspects related to the following: increasing accessibility to urban tree canopy and associated human health, environmental, and economic benefits in disadvantaged communities; broadening community engagement in local urban forest planning, tree planting, and management activities; improved community and urban forest resilience to climate change, extreme heat, forest pests and diseases, and storm events through best management and maintenance practices. So, please plan to join us for the May 2023 i-Tree webinar session, and see how i-Tree might be a good fit for you.
