Urban Forestry... the art, science, and technology of managing trees and forest resources in and around urban community ecosystems for the physiological, sociological, economic, and aesthetic benefits trees provide society.
"This project is designed to lay the initial foundation on which to further build a research, demonstration, and public service/outreach program that will serve state, regional, and local needs for advancing, promoting, and heighten awareness of urban forest stewardship."
