Description

Trees on streets and on other publicly  owned properties managed by Public Works agencies provide a multitude of aesthetic and environmental benefits to citizens, businesses and visitors alike. Beyond shade and beauty, trees also have practical benefits and a real monetary value that cities sometimes are unaware of.  Unlike other public infrastructure components, properly planted and maintained trees increase in value over time.

An urban forest management plan, based on recent tree inventory data and analysis of available staff, equipment, and budget resources, is an essential tool for protecting this valuable resource. An urban forest
management plan is an action plan; it gives public works agencies detailed information, recommendations, and resources needed to effectively and proactively manage public trees.

The purpose of having an urban forest management plan is to ensure that a community will enjoy the benefits of trees through proper arboricultural techniques and management practices. The goal of the plan is
to state what is needed to manage the urban forest and to describe activities and services required to execute these responsibilities.

Who Should Attend?  City, Village, & Township Foresters! Get your CEUs!  Village Managers, Public Works personnel involved in routine tree maintenance, communities facing the ever growing EAB/Asian Beetle infestation problem, Engineers & Landscape Architects responsible for putting together bid documents, and more!
