The Tree Benefit Calculator
The Tree Benefit Calculator will help you and your community determine the environmental and economic values of your trees. What are the related energy savings, air quality and storm water remediation benefits, carbon sequestration, and property values? Just input the zip code, tree identification, tree diameter or reasonable estimate, and the general tree location. The Tree Benefit Calculator allows anyone to make a simple estimation of the benefits individual street-side trees provide. This tool is based on i-Tree's street tree assessment tool called STREETS.
