The Urban Forest Management Plan Writing Tool
Urban Forestry South recently developed the interactive, web-based Urban Forest Management Plan Writing Tool to help newly-formed tree boards and/or municipalities new to urban forest management evaluate their urban forest program and develop a workable plan.
