How do you calculate the ecosystem benefits generated by the trees?

We use the i-Tree Streets software developed by the U.S. Forest Service. i-Tree Streets calculates ecosystem benefits using the species and diameter of the tree and the i-Tree climate zone in which the tree is located. The Forest Service does not recommend i-Tree Streets for use outside the continental United States, which is why international maps and those in Hawaii and Alaska do not automatically display benefits.
