Language: English

Summary:

This report focuses on urban forestry (urban forest management) as it is practiced in urban areas as defined by the Bureau of the Census. These areas include urbanized areas with populations of 50,000 or more, places that contain some urbanized areas within their boundaries, or places with at least 2,500 people and located outside of urbanized areas. Community forestry is a phrase that can mean one thing in Mexico or Nepal, and different things in the United States. For example, in the Pacific Northwest, where the federal government is the major landowner, community forestry might refer to the process by which loggers, environmentalists, and others come together to craft a vision for the management of public lands. In New England, community forestry can mean the management of predominantly rural town forests by local municipalities. In this report, community forestry and urban forestry are used interchangeably to describe tree and forestry activities practiced in population centers, whether large or small.

(LCMW) Relevance: This report focuses on urban forestry (urban forest management).
