i-Tree Database provides a central submission site for new location-specific data coming into i-Tree from around the world.

Users in these new locations will be able to update their software and run an analysis with new locations and species without requiring manual processing by the US Forest Service. Below are some files that are used in the data submission process with i-Tree Database.Refer to the i-Tree Database Help section for guidance on how to use these resources.
