Choose your project type
Complete Inventory - Typically used for smaller public areas or private properties such as
corporate campuses, parks, apartment complexes, individual homes or cemeteries.
Sample Inventory - Used when the study area is too large to cost-effectively inventory the entire tree population.
Project estimates and benefits are based on sampling of random plots.
Manuals and Guides - Provide step-by-step instructions for all project phases.
New guides offer detailed information on specific topics.
Video Learning - New instructional videos are being developed to show you how to use
the Eco v6 application.
Model Methods, Technical Papers and Journal Articles - Explain the background model science, processes and limitations.
See the Archives Eco v6 sections.
International Eco users
Adapted for Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom -
Manual processing for other international Eco users - International projects completed in countries other than Canada, Australia and the U.K. require manual processing by the U.S. Forest Service. Additional information and data such as local hourly pollution data will need to be submitted for analyses.
Eco v5 - Eco v6 beta considerations
You will find the Eco v5 legacy application availble within the i-Tree 2016 suite for users currently working on an Eco v5 project. Or, who require using the old PDA utility for data collection. Version 5 projects can be opened in Eco v6 and updated but will require reprocessing for reports to be updated.
