DescriptionThis special issue has presented data on several topics related to assessing urban forest structure. These topics include means to measure urban forest cover from aerial-based platforms (Walton et al. 2008), national and local ground-based assessments of urban forest structure and functions (Cumming et al. 2008; Nowak et al. 2008a), measurement of street tree environments through both sampling (McBride 2008) and 100% inventories (Jim 2008), evaluating urban forest structure and health in Shenyang, China (Ning et al. 2008), and the effect of plot and sample size on estimate precision (Nowak et al. 2008b). These papers provide insights to aid cities in assessing their urban forest resource.
