Urban Forest Effects Model (UFORE)
"The UFORE computer model was developed to help managers and researchers quantify urban forest structure and its functions. UFORE is designed to use standardized field data from randomly located plots, and local hourly air pollution and meteorological data to quantify urban forest structure and numerous urban forest effects for cities across the world. The model calculates numerous attributes about the urban forest, including:
Exotic vs. native species distribution
The model also calculates various forest functions and values related to tree effects on:
Greenhouse gases and global warming
Building energy use"
