In this issue:
i-Tree Eco is now fully adapted for projects located in Mexico! This means that users in Mexico can download the latest version of the i-Tree suite and use Eco with fully automated processing and similar capabilities as users in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK. The new version was introduced at a recent three-day workshop in Mexico City where participants learned how to use the new Spanish language version of Eco to address many challenges in their cities. To learn more about the workshop and new opportunities for Mexico and Latin America to use i-Tree, click on the link below.  
 
 
Capture map coordinates – like before and like never before. This November, i-Tree Eco will incorporate options for capturing coordinate locations of trees in your sample projects and inventories. Using Eco’s Mobile Data Collector, users can record coordinates from their device while collecting data, or select their location right from the screen map. (And yes – you can still enter them manually). With the integration of your tree and/or plot center coordinates, you can export them along with your Eco benefits data to map out your inventories and better visualize management possibilities.
Researchers at UMass - Amherst need your help! Bethany Bradley and Brian Kane are conducting a study on commonalities between street trees planted in municipalities around the globe and the implications for people's interactions with trees. Ultimately, they hope to support the formation of stronger networks of urban foresters for exchanging information about the costs and benefits of various assemblages of species. To contribute data to this study, please click on the link below and answer the questions in the short survey.
