Users of the i-Tree Landscape tool can identify potential planting areas
based on environmental and demographic variables. Dark red polygons
in this image show areas of high population and low canopy cover in
Green Bay, Wisconsin.

It is important to identify where there is available space for an expanded tree canopy as well as to prioritize the best locations to place trees. It is also important to market the benefits of the urban forest by emphasizing the value of tree canopy with regards to things such as air pollution removal and stormwater reduction.

To find the most appropriate planting areas in your community and to calculate benefits of the urban forest, please use the U.S. Forest Service’s i-Tree Landscape tool [exit DNR]. Learn how to use the program by following these simple instructions [PDF].

Reports generated from i-Tree Landscape can be used to promote the benefits of your urban forest and to inform management decisions. It is suggested to copy and paste the report into a spreadsheet or word processing program for final use.
