So, what is iTree and what else can it do for you?

Determine their Urban Tree Canopy (UTC) - iTree Canopy

Place trees in the landscape to maximize their benefits - iTree Design

Select the right tree for a given location - iTree Species

Select planting sites based on demographic info, pollution, or water quality data - iTree Landscape

Evaluate current benefits, costs, and management needs - iTree Streets
