    Description

    Trees in urban areas can have a significant impact on human health and the environment. Unfortunately, there is relatively little data about the structure, health, functions, and long-term changes in this important resource. In the United States, a number of efforts are underway to assess urban forest attributes at the local to national scales. In addition, tools are being developed to facilitate urban forest quantification by managers. These assessments and tools can be used in Canada and other counties to aid in planning and improving urban forest management.
