National Tree Benefit Calculator

Performance 5

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. With 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.

    This tool is very easy to use and is free. In less than a minute, I’m able to get an estimate of the economic value of ecosystem services provided by a red oak in my yard. If using this tool, be sure to look over the other tabs in the results – you might not notice them at first but there’s a lot of interesting information there. I haven’t reached out to them for questions, but there is a small overview of the model that explains some pertinent background information.
