Software tool for forest restoration planning (online)

New tool for smarter investments in forest restoration

Peter Hawthorne has led the development of the Restoration Opportunity Optimization Tool, a new open-source ecosystem services software program for forest landscape restoration planning. The tool will allow regional planners to weigh the pros and cons of various land management scenarios in terms of keeping water clean, sequestering carbon and other goals. More broadly, ROOT will help inform smarter, targeted investments in forest landscape restoration decisions by illustrating which restored areas may provide the greatest benefit at lowest cost.
