Ready to Take Your Urban Forestry Program to the Next Level?
Listen to the archive audio recording of this one-hour panel discussion on urban forestry master plans. Hear from three cities at different stages of the game in urban forestry planning. This panel focused on answering the questions we hear from many communities exploring ways to boost their urban forestry programs through a master plan. Topics included how each community got started, how the plan was funded, what they wanted out of it and what they actually got out of it (not always the same thing), more about the process of putting a plan together, what surprises they ran into along the way, and an update of how they are using it today and what progress they've made.
