Urban forests are forests for people
They provide real, measurable benefits to your residents and your neighborhoods. Dozens, even hundreds, of communities have developed plans to grow their urban forests, and harvest this suite of benefits. We’ve charted their experience to create this comprehensive collection of tools, resources, and guideposts.
Like them, you’ll need to find the pathway which best suits your community — the one that addresses your own goals, excites your leadership, engages your residents, and helps enlist your peers.
The destination is a vibrant urban forest that enriches your city for generations.
