DescriptionUrban forest restoration programs have been increasing worldwide in recent decades. A mail survey by Borneman and Hostetler (2004) gathered basic information on 33 urban natural areas programs in the United States and Canada and found the programs differed considerably along key variables such as budget, hectares under jurisdiction, and staffing. In terms of their commonalities, most programs were engaged in some form of restoration activity such as invasive plant removal and all relied at least in part on volunteer stewardship efforts.
