Abstract : Energy budget modeling of vegetated surfaces is complicated by the extreme variability that can be encountered in the species that are present A three dimensional thermal model of trees, TREETHERM, has been developed to understand the thermal properties of trees. The model has been developed for leafed and leafless conditions. This report presents a Users Guide for TREETHERM. Descriptions of the input requirements for the code are presented as well as examples of how to use the code.
