What are my trees worth?
Trees in urban areas provide a number of important benefits. They help to clean the air, curb storm water runoff, raise property values, sequester carbon, and reduce energy costs.
Enter information about a street-side tree and learn about the benefits it provides. Street-side trees are typically located in front yards, medians, parkways, planting strips or other common planting areas adjacent to streets.Click here to use: National Tree Benefit Calculator
Understanding This Tool:
The Tree Benefit Calculator allows anyone to make a simple estimation of the benefits individual street-side trees provide. The Tree Benefit Calculator allows anyone to calculate a first-order approximation of the benefits individual street-side trees provide. This tool is based on i-Tree’s street tree assessment tool called STREETS. With minimal inputs of location, species and tree size, users will get an understanding of the environmental and economic value trees provide on an annual basis.
The Tree Benefit Calculator is intended to be simple and accessible. As such, this tool should be considered a starting point for understanding trees’ value in the community rather than a scientific accounting of precise values. For more detailed information on urban and community forest assessments, visit the i-Tree website.
