Planning and Policy
It is important for community foresters and tree board members to be familiar with community policies and to work together across political and jurisdictional boundaries to guide the management of the urban forest, and build awareness about tree health and care while meeting the vision, goals and objectives of the community.
i-Tree is a tool for assessing and managing community forests. A guide is provided to determine and measure the value of an urban forest.
