i-Tree: What's New

i-Tree 2017 Suite - now available!

The i-Tree 2017 suite is now available for download. Existing i-Tree users who update their software application with the latest release will have access to the completely redesigned Eco v6 application offering many new reports and options. Users who are currently working on an Eco v6 beta project using the mobile data collection system should make sure all field data being collected is submitted by collectors and loaded into the desktop prior to updating to i-Tree 2017. Due to a database update, Eco v6 beta projects will require updating when they are opened in the latest version of Eco v6.0.3. Eco version 5 is still available within the i-Tree 2017 suite for users who are currently working on older Eco projects. Those Eco v5 projects can later be updated to be compatible in Eco v6 with access to its new features & options.

Other i-Tree 2017 highlights include:

  • MyTree (beta) - a new i-Tree app for smartphones and tablets to calculate individual tree benefits
  • i-Tree Eco v6 - UV radiation reduction due to trees, expanded tree hydrology effects, and tree effects on wildlife habitat (9 bird species). Some new Eco v6 reports are limited to either plot-based projects or area based inventory projects.
  • i-Tree Species - Updated to run as an accessible web-based tool
