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.
Though designed for California communities, this site illustrates how and with what data others can identify disadvantaged neighborhoods in their own community.
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 new EPA web-based tool helps local officials and other community members consider the benefits and uses of green infrastructure.
The Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) is part of EPA’s suite of water research tools. SWMM is a hydrology-hydraulic water quality simulation model used to simulate stormwater runoff quantity and quality in urban areas. SWMM is highly technical and is best suited for those with working knowledge of the industry.
