The National Urban Forest Alliance (NUFA) is supporting one day i-TreeECO Australia training seminars in all capital cities. The seminars are designed to provide participants with an overview of the i-Tree ECO software and its application. NGIA is a Platinum Partner of the NUFA which was recently formed to promote the growth and recognition of the urban forests in Australian cities and regional centres.
i-TreeEco is part of a software suite of urban forest analysis tools (referred to as i-Tree) that provides information ranging from environmental benefits, canopy and land cover, stormwater analysis, species selection and storm damage management. It is designed to use field data from complete inventories or randomly located sample plots to quantify urban forest structure, environmental effects, and environmental and monetary value to communities.
Participants attending the seminars will be provided with an overview of i-TreeEco, requirements for its operation, its application for Australian use, and future opportunities for its ongoing development. Examples of completed Australian projects using iTreeEco will also be discussed. Participants will also be provided with the opportunity to collect field data using i-TreeEco.
Workshops run from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm and will be presented by Craig Hinton and Chris Spencer from ENSPEC Arboriculture and Environmental Consultants. The cost to attend is $88 per person which covers all workshop materials, equipment hire and lunch. For more information on the seminars or to register your interest, please click here.
