URBAN FORESTRY

An urban forest is a collection of trees that grow within our city to improve the urban environment and the quality of life of people who live, work and spend their leisure time in urban landscapes. There are countless benefits of urban forests such as: filtering air, water, sunlight; providing shelter to animals; recreational areas for people; slowing wind and stormwater; shading homes and businesses to conserve energy providing up to a 10 degree cooler climate while lowering air-conditioning costs, and potentially reducing the number of unhealthful ozone days that plague us in the peak summer months.
