The 2014 version of i-Tree is now available!
The new 2014 release of the i-Tree Tools greatly expands the capabilities of two of the most widely used applications: i-Tree Design and i-Tree Canopy. In addition, i-Tree Hydro has also been redesigned with many new features. Here are a few highlights:

i-Tree Canopy has become one of the most popular i-Tree Tools, used in many countries around the world for producing quick, statistically valid, estimates of canopy cover. In addition to cover type estimates, i-Tree Canopy will now estimate the following ecosystem services and their monetary values:
i-Tree Canopy ecosystem services estimates and values are based on local benefit values within the United Sates along with the estimated tree canopy cover area for an area of interest. International Canopy users are limited to selecting a comparable U.S. location and selecting their local currency.
