Forester on the Street is a production by the U.S. Forest Service intended to educate people about their national forests and grasslands. The segment will send Forest Service employees to a different city every month to talk to people about significant events or interesting trivia. May brought the Forester on the Street team to Sacramento, California, where they asked passers-by who stewards their national forests and grasslands, and what significant threats those lands face.

i-Tree Canopy offers a quick and easy way to produce a statistically valid estimate of land cover types (e.g., tree cover) using aerial images available in Google Maps. The latest version of Canopy also estimates values for air pollution reduction and capturing atmospheric carbon. Canopy can be used by urban forest managers to estimate tree canopy cover, set canopy goals and monitor canopy change over time. Canopy can also be used to estimate inputs for use in i-Tree Hydro and elsewhere where land cover data are needed.
