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.

‘Earth Day Was Excellent – Now What? Engagement, Equity and Opportunities with i-Tree’
So many of our i-Tree participants celebrate the power of trees during spring planting events around Earth and Arbor Day. But we know that the challenges of maintenance, stewardship, and health often continue after the big day. Join us on Thursday, May 23 for the next UNRI i-Tree Series webinar highlighting some strategies for using information from i-Tree to guide your post-planting strategies and prioritize your program goals.
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 important feedback to the i-Tree team, and allow your ideas to be brought into future planning efforts. Please plan to join us if you are able. For more information on i-Tree, please visit www.itreetools.org/.
The program begins at 1:00 PM (Eastern), on Thursday, May 23, 2019
