Urban Forest Management Plan

The Urban Forest Management Plan provides direction for the maintenance and improvement of the urban forest. It also makes recommendations to enhance and improve our City’s urban forest now, and for the future.

  • Clarifies confusion about resource management and authority
  • Coordinates the roles of the different agencies and bureaus
