i-Tree is a state-of-the-art, peer-reviewed software suite from the USDA Forest Service that provides inventory, analysis, and benefits assessments tools for the trees in our cities and towns.  i-Tree tools can help communities of all sizes strengthen their urban forest management, planning, and advocacy efforts by understanding and assessing the makeup of community forests, and the environmental services and economic benefits that trees provide.  i-Tree tools can support watershed planning, placement of trees, forest conservation, land use decisions, and much more.


i-Tree tools are free and accessible online.  This two-part workshop is intended to teach participants how to apply and promote i-Tree locally in order to make more informed decisions about tree management and stewardship.  This workshop is appropriate for anyone involved and/or interested in urban and community forest management: town planners, VT Tree Wardens, municipal recreation and public works staff, professional arborists, conservation commission and tree board members, educators, landscape architects, foresters, and municipal officials.
