  • SERVICES FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT: URBAN FORESTRY MANAGEMENT PLANNING


    Urban Forestry

     

    Your urban forest likely provides millions of dollars of services a year and with a little planning you can enhance those benefits. Developing an urban forest management plan is a demanding task and may seem daunting. Using the plan writing tools and resources below will help break the process into manageable chunks. Both of the plan writing tools follow a basic format of four key concepts:


    1. Knowing where you want to go – The vision for the urban forest
    2. Knowing what you have – Inventories and assessments
    3. Deciding how you will get there – Management actions and responsibilities
    4. Guiding the way – Plans Policies and Regulations

    To facilitate the process, gather as much existing information related to each concept and enlist a core team to help develop the plan. Remember, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
