The Victorian Environment Committee brings an informative event on two useful resources. Sara Barron will present on using the free tool "iTree" for analysis of existing canopy cover. Leigh Staas will discuss the Which Plant Where project, elaborating on species tolerance studies and testing for a future climate. 



i-Tree is a free tool that quantifies the benefits and values of trees around the world, aids in tree and forest management and advocacy, shows potential risks to tree and forest health and Is based on peer-reviewed, USDA Forest Service Research. A demonstration of how iTree can be used to understand existing canopy cover will be followed by a discussion of key benefits and challenges to using this tool.

Speaker 1 (Sara Barron):

Dr. Sara Barron is a landscape architect and lecturer in urban forestry. Sara's expertise covers large-scale sustainable community planning and climate change projects and the effectiveness of green design interventions for micro doses of nature.



The Which Plant Where Project is a five-year research program that will investigate how well current landscaping species will cope under the more extreme climates that Australia’s cities will face and examine opportunities for new species and varieties for the urban context.  


Speaker 2 (Leigh Staas):

Leigh Staas is the Program Manager for the Which Plant Where project. She is the implementation lead for all stakeholder engagement and relationship management of the project to ensure that the research is relevant and valuable for end-users.
