Urban Forestry

Mission

To manage our urban forest in a healthy, safe, and sustainable state, which maintains our original forest legacy, manages risk, and increases the canopy coverage for shade, stormwater retention and property value.

Overview

Urban forestry is the sustained planning, planting, protection, maintenance and care of trees, forests, green spaces in and around cities and communities for the economic, environmental, social, and public health benefits of people.

Trees help clean our air, and reduce the pollutants that trigger asthma attacks and exacerbate other respiratory diseases. They cool our streets, sidewalks, and homes on hot summer days. Trees increase property value, and encourage neighborhood revitalization. And trees make our City an even more beautiful and comfortable place to live, work, and visit.
