What information is needed to include new tree species in the Cool Farm Tool?

Michaela

The Cool Farm Tool is in the process of including additional tree species to the tool. In general, what is needed is an allometric equation that determines above ground biomass based on 1 or 2 easily observed parameters. The Cool Farm Alliance is always open to discuss further improvements of the methods. However, all improvements require not only the methods itself but also the funding for the IT implementation. At the same time, we want to keep the tool simple and uncluttered. Please contact the Alliance via support@coolfarmtool.org to discuss any potential inclusion of new tree species.
