FCCP Carbon Activities

 

i-Tree MyTree Activity

A variety of tools exists to understand the carbon benefits of trees from the individual tree level to the regional/continental level. One suite of tools that allows users of all levels to learn about the carbon benefits of trees is the U.S. Forest Services’ i-Tree platform. The i-Tree MyTree Activity allows users to utilize the i-Tree MyTree tool which is a web-based software that allows for the quantification of individual tree benefits in urban landscapes

i-Tree Design Activity

Modeling trees at the plot level in urban areas provides unique opportunities to understand carbon benefits of urban trees. Estimating the monetary benefits of trees in urban setting can be useful to a variety of people and a diversity of applications. The i-Tree Design Activity allows users to model the benefits of multiple trees surrounding a building at the same time.

i-Tree Canopy Activity

Estimating the benefits of trees using field measurments can be quite expensive and time consuming. However, utilizing satellite imagery allows for us to quanitfy benefits of entire forests and canopies across a larger region quickly and efficiently. The i-Tree Canopy Activity allows user to use satellite imagery to identify. label, and characterize sample point to estimate benefits of urban tree canopies across a region of interest.
