Comments Does your community struggle to understand the contribution trees provide to people every day? Do you need to justify your tree program with cost/benefit analysis? Are you interested in connecting trees to broad sustainability goals? iTree can help! The Davey Resource Group, the Georgia Urban Forest Council,and The U.S. Forest Service present this program targeting the practical use of the on-line iTree benefits calculator tools. The iTree development team has been adding new features to make calculating the value and benefits of trees both efficient and effective. However, the various tool can be overwhelming and industry professionals often don't have time to wade through all the options to get results. During this 1/2 day workshop, you will gain an understanding of the latest iTree tools and how to quickly use this resource to generate tree benefits. Incorporated group discussion will spark ideas on ways to use tree benefit information in various outreach and promotion efforts.
