Urban Forestry is the careful care and management of tree populations in developed areas, for the purpose of improving the quality of life for residents and visitors. Urban Forestry advocates the role of trees as a critical part of a municipality's infrastructure.
What this means to the community as a whole, is that trees help clean the air, moderate temperatures, manage stormwater, prevent soil erosion, slow winds, buffer noise, deflect UV rays, lower crime rates, lengthen the life span of paved roads and make the community more visually appealing - just to name a few benefits of healthy trees in a community.
