Leveraging the benifits of BIM in planting design
with complete, parametric, dynamic BIM objects for trees and shrubs
bimTREEs are available for test users. The free test set includes 5 trees with some selected sizes (free).
There is an extnded set available , that includes 50 trees and large shrubs with tree nursery stock information for Switzerland (license fee).

Trees provide numerous ecosystem services to moderate microclimates and improve environmental conditions, including carbon storage, reduction of rainwater runoff, pollutant filtering, shading, cooling, and mitigation of heat island effects. Methods for measuring and predicting tree dimensions, including the crown projection area, crown volume, and leaf area, enable arborists, planners, and researchers to model the growth and benefits of urban trees. The fully parametric bimTREEs allow to ecosystem services over time based on predicted growth.
