International Database System - Coming Soon

i-Tree Database imageSince the release of i-Tree Eco version 6, we have received numerous international projects requiring custom processing by the US Forest Service. As a result, we are currently developing a new online database system to better serve international users and to reduce time and resources needed for processing. The new system will validate and accept international pollution data, location details, new species information, and other model requirements. The data will be vetted and integrated into the model as a new international location that would be available for automated processing in a future Eco update. Learn more >

By combining environmental data with community values, the City will be able to more effectively and efficiently target ongoing activities which support a positive cultural and behavioral change towards managing and increasing trees and green infrastructure. Learn more >
