Urban Forestry Management
Urban Forest Management  The term urban forest refers to all publicly and privately owned trees within an urban area, including individual trees along streets and in backyards, as well as stands of remnant forest. Urban forests are an integral part of community ecosystems, whose numerous elements (such as people, animals, buildings, infrastructure, water, and air) interact to significantly affect the quality of urban life. Trees are managed in urban areas by taking tree inventories of the different species and doing risk-assessments of trees for structural damage and diseases. Removal of
the high risk trees, maintenance of healthy trees and replanting new trees will continue tree sustainability for the communities. Part of the research conducted by SU Ag Center scientists is to ensure the tree health of urban forests.
