Re: Batch Runs

Hi Will, Unfortunately, there isn't a built in mechanism to facilitate the type of batch runs you are describing. As an alternative you could set up each of your projects as a separate stratum and combine them all in one project. Then you could use the individual tree or strata level results in your...

Re: Resolve Conflict Warning

Hi Amy, Those warnings have to do with how i-Tree Eco manages retrieving data from mobile devices. Typically, you get those messages if some change has been made to the data on more than once before retrieval. For example you may have had multiple people submit data from mobile for the same plot or ...

Re: Allometric equations

Hello Giacomo, Copice is not a common practice here in the US so i-Tree doesn't have a defined way to handle those trees. However, for multi-stem trees you can enter up to the 6 largest stems as DBH1 to DBH6. Alternatively, you could calculate the dbh of a tree that would have the same basal area as...

Re: Certification of data obtained

Hello, I am not sure that I completely understand your question. There is no certification process for data collectors as the tools are free to use and anyone can use them to collect their own data. The results obtained from the i-Tree tools represent the outcomes of scientific models. Users can rev...

Re: Allometric equations

Hello Giacomo, This may depend on which of the i-Tree Tools you are using. If you are using i-Tree Eco please see the section of this paper, http://www.itreetools.org/eco/resources/UFORE%20Methods.pdf , titled "UFORE-C: Carbon Storage and Annual Sequestration". i-Tree is not using species specific g...

Re: Attempting to use i-Tree Design as part of a municipal tree ordinance

Hi Aaron, I could see i-Tree Design being challenging for some users and further some users. As an alternative you could try MyTree ( https://mytree.itreetools.org/#/ ) which is even simpler to use. You could also try to putting together some sort of matrix or table of common species and their relat...

Re: Forecast and individual tree outputs

Thanks for the question. i-Tree Forecast is actually a cohort model not an individual tree model which is why it doesn't generate the exact output you are looking for. That being said, you may have some options. One option is to use the "Cohort data output" option when you run Forecast. This output ...

Re: Import data from Excel to Eco v6.0 in a plot-based sample project?

Yes this is still the case. Given our limited staff and development time I don't believe this will be implemented in the near future without a dedicated funding source for this specific feature. Depending on what results you are interested in and your desired accuracy you could always import your da...

Re: Strata question

This depends on the goals of your project. If you keep them as separate strata in a single project you will have all of your data and results collected in one place. You will also notice that many of the reports have breakdowns by strata which would allow you to compare the different properties. How...

Re: Energy savings

The Energy savings in i-Tree Eco will work without the crown measurements. However, you do need to enable the "Energy (building interactions) option under "Data Collection Options" during project set up and you do need to collect measurements of the distance and direction to residential structures 2...

Thanks for the question. The i-Tree Eco list currently includes more than 8,000 species, https://www.itreetools.org/documents/488/EcoSpeciesList_20July2018_esxmUKb.xlsx . It has pretty good coverage for most species in the US but may be missing some international species and some tropical species. I...
