Community Forestry
A clearinghouse for information to help communities manage their urban trees.

Community forestry planning - Developing a community forestry master plan is the first step in building a healthy and beautiful urban forest while saving money on street tree maintenance.

Conducting a street tree inventory - How to gather information about the trees in your community to provide a basis for your master plan.

Resources - To help you implement your master plan, from choosing the right trees and how to plant them to working with people to maintain and improve your urban forest. See also the Urban Horticulture Institute website.
