What Is The State Of Your Urban Forest Program?

Knowing the state of your community’s urban forest program is essential for effectively and equitably growing and maintaining the urban forest in your community—and we can help!

Our professional urban foresters can help measure the state of your urban forest through tree inventories, strategic planning, or the development of an urban forest master plan.

To get started, we developed a self-assessment survey to help you analyze your urban forest program.

Based on your responses, our professionals will provide you with your own urban forest program analysis, including:

  • Your city’s urban forest composite score
  • A graph of the Indicators of Your Urban Forest
  • A list of recommended next steps for your community

Why Is Urban Forestry Important?

Urban and community forests are not only an aesthetically pleasing part of a neighborhood, but also provide mental and physical health benefits to the people living in them.

Urban forests help filter the air and water, control stormwater, conserve energy, and provide shade and habitat. It also provides spaces for recreation and community bonding, which adds economic value to the surrounding neighborhoods.

Planting, maintaining, and caring for the trees of an urban forest by an experienced team of arborists and foresters help these spaces thrive.
