Promoting Urban and Community Forestry through Staffing, Volunteer Groups, Tree Boards and Ordinances

The success of community forests relies on good management by municipal staff, volunteer groups, and tree boards framed around well-written ordinances. This presentation will explore the role of these components in promoting a healthy community forest. Discussion will include the role Extension educators can play in promoting community forestry through educational programs as well as by direct assistance to communities in the development of effective ordinances and establishment of tree boards. Examples will be provided along with resources on how to promote and develop effective community forestry programs.
