i-Tree Streets (v 5.1)

USDA Forest Service
2014

i-Tree Streets uses tree inventory data to quantify environmental and aesthetic benefits and their dollar value, including: energy conservation, air quality improvement, CO2 reduction, stormwater control, and property value increase. The study area can range from a single planting site to an entire city’s street tree population. Users may analyze data from an existing street tree inventory or conduct a new Streets-compatible inventory. i-Tree Streets is an adaptation of the Street Tree Resource Assessment Tool for Urban forest Managers (STRATUM). Users must register to download and install the free iTree software suite.

The LPS Benefits Toolkit is a compilation of online calculators and tools that can be used to estimate landscape performance. The Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) compiles and writes descriptions of the tools in the Benefits Toolkit. LAF has no involvement in the development, review, or maintenance of the tools.
