Journals and Toolkits

These items are intended to serve as reference materials and resources for researchers.

They include an in-depth bibliography of economic valuation studies, a searchable storehouse of empirical studies on the economic value of environmental benefits and human health effects, and a tool for quickly comparing the performance, costs, and some benefits of green infrastructure practices to those of conventional stormwater management practices.

Other resources available are a state-of-the-art, peer-reviewed software suite from the USDA Forest Service that provides urban forestry analysis and benefits assessment tools, and a calculation tool that allows users to estimate the annual economic and environmental value of individual street trees using inputs of a tree's location, species and size.
