Urban Forestry Management Software
Davey Research Group’s Urban Forestry Management Software can be used to efficiently manage an urban forest. The system helps manage tree inventory, calls, and work records as well as identify sites, map your urban forest, and create reports.
The Center for Watershed Protection, with support from the US Forest Service, created this comprehensive guide to the role and benefits of trees in reducing stormwater runoff. The page also includes various “stormwater forestry practices” that are designed to maximize the effectiveness of trees in stormwater reduction.
This tool from American Forests is an extension of ESRI’s ArcGIS software. It converts stormwater and energy impacts (among others) from trees and other vegetation into monetary values based on local specifications.
The US Forest Service studies urbanization strategies that can prevent habitat loss and fragmentation for local wildlife. This page includes current research as well as contact information for Forest Service wildlife and urban research experts.
