DescriptionThis special issue is the second of two dedicated to civic science. As shared in the first special issue, "Civic science in urban forestry is a means of engaging the public in the study, management, and care of urban trees, and includes varied approaches with different disciplinary foundations" (Roman et al. 2018). We describe highlights from six articles (including original research and short communications) that assess program evaluation, data quality, and volunteer motivation. With these articles, we aim to continue our consideration of current best practices and future research needs for urban forestry community science.
