i-Tree Database Resources

i-Tree Database provides a central submission site for new location-specific data coming into i-Tree from around the world. Submitted data will be vetted and officially added to i-Tree Eco and potentially other tools in the future. 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.

i-Tree Streets & STRATUM Resources

Documents for STRATUM also pertain to i-Tree Streets as Streets is an adaptation of the original Street Tree Resource Assessment Tool for Urban Forest Managers (STRATUM) application.

i-Tree Canopy Resources

Predefined i-Tree Canopy cover classes

The following (3) Canopy cover class examples can be input in to an i-Tree Canopy project. The first (2) examples were designed for use in conjunction with i-Tree Hydro analyses. The third example was used by the Wisconsin DNR for their multi-community Canopy survey to include "potential" tree canopy. The cover class files themselves can be downloaded, saved to your computer and uploaded within i-Tree Canopy as you configure your survey.
