KSU students collect the GPS location of a tree on campus.
Students in the Urban Forestry program at Kent State University in Ohio conducted a campus tree inventory using i-Tree as part of a service-learning course launched in connection to the expansion of their Tree Campus USA designation through the Arbor Day Foundation. Focusing on the study of trees in the urban environment and the maintenance of an urban campus forest, the students used i-Tree Streets, Eco, and Hydro to determine the benefits the trees provide. Since 2013, students have continued to collect data on more than 550 trees, and this information is utilized by the campus to develop comprehensive strategies for the care and maintenance of their urban forest.
