Urban and Community Forestry

 

Healthy trees and forests in urban areas contribute to improved air and water quality, watershed function, energy conservation, and social well-being. The Urban and Community Forestry Program provides support to States, cities, and nonprofit groups, so they can plant, protect, maintain, and utilize wood from community trees. 

 

Forest Service Grants Impact Viewer

This interactive map of the Northeast and Midwest United States documents the distribution of U.S. Forest Service urban forestry grants over time. Zoom in to see more detailed grant data, including each grant's recipients, purpose, amount, and contact person. This map illustrates both the impacts of small State grants stemming from Federal investment and grant impacts at the landscape level. Communities in "Developing Status" (orange) have at least one component of professional staff, ordinances/policies, advocacy groups, or management plans that resulted from State technical assistance. Communities in "Managing Status" (green) have all four components and are considered to be sustaining their urban natural resources.
