Urban and community forests are the trees and greenspaces found in our cities and towns. Whether your hometown has a hundred or a hundred-thousand citizens, your community can benefit from trees. From enhancing property value to mitigating stormwater, urban forests make positive contributions to our environment and our quality of life. But creating sustainable urban forests requires thoughtful planning and management. Our faculty conduct research and outreach on a range of urban forestry topics that you might find helpful in your community. Check out our resources on the Urban Forestry Gateway.
