In this issue:
The Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with the U.N. Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), has created a new program aimed at engaging the global community in celebrating and managing urban forests. Tree Cities of the World is a very exciting opportunity to connect those in urban forestry in a new network dedicated to sharing and adopting the most successful approaches to managing urban trees – including the use of i-Tree!

Cities around the globe are signing the pledge and working toward becoming a Tree City of the World in 2019. There are many benefits for participating in the program including the following:
  • Developing a sustainable urban forestry program based on achieving core standards
  • Educating the public and decision-makers about tree benefits and the need for tree management
  • Demonstrating your city's commitment toward a healthy environment
  • Joining a network of global urban forestry leaders who recognize the importance of city trees
As a member of the i-Tree community, this is a new opportunity for you to raise awareness and showcase your city's urban forestry program. This is also a wonderful new avenue to highlight i-Tree as a tool that can help cities receive global recognition. Please explore and share the website with those in your area who can work toward your city being recognized as a Tree City of the World. If you have questions, please contact the Tree Cities of the World team at treecitiesoftheworld@arborday.org.
Registration is now open for the first global i-Tree Symposium held in the United States.

June 16-19, 2019
Syracuse, NY, State University of New York - Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF)


This event will bring i-Tree users, developers, and scientists together to help attendees learn innovative ways to incorporate i-Tree for successful projects, gather and share experiences and best practices, explore new science behind the tools, and contribute to future development goals of i-Tree tools. 
 Early registration ends May 1, 2019 and is limited to 150 people.
 
Make Arbor Day every day by connecting your community's trees with local sustainability efforts, resiliency planning, public health outcomes, green infrastructure initiatives, climate strategies, and more. 

Eco v6 has many user friendly features and dozens of useful reports for urban forest managers and advocates.  Some advantages of an Eco assessment include:
  • Comprehensive tree and forest structure and benefit analyses
  • Strategic decision-making information to help plan, protect and optimize tree and forest benefits
  • Adaptable options for a single tree, park, neighborhood, city-wide or regional assessment.
  • Flexible import system and tree data options which can work with most existing tree inventories
