Why should I use i-Tree Eco?

Post by i-Tree Support » Thu Jan 04, 2007 1:56 pm

Eco provides necessary information on the urban forest resource and its ecosystem services to improve urban forest management and garner support for urban forestry programs.

Data on urban forest structure and health can aid in establishing appropriate budget levels and workload allocation, while information on tree cover can help define areas where new tree plantings would be more beneficial. Pest information can help detect existing vulnerabilities to insects and pathogens that could devastate the urban forest.

The ecosystem service results can be used to determine the value of the resource and support integrating urban forest programs in larger regulatory efforts to improve environmental quality.
