We want to hear from you…

In order to better understand how Washington communities manage their trees and to learn how we may better assist you in your work with trees in your community, we have created a short survey. The survey is available on DNR’s Urban and Community Forestry webpage, or you can access the survey directly at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WAurbanforestysurvey

Please take a few minutes to tell us a little about your community, and help us learn how we can help you meet your own urban and community forestry goals.

The Washington State Urban and Community Forestry Program works to educate citizens and decision-makers about the economic, environmental, psychological, and aesthetic benefits of trees and to assist local governments, citizen groups and volunteers in planting and sustaining healthy trees and vegetation wherever people live and work in Washington State. Its mission is to provide leadership to create self-sustaining urban and community forestry programs that preserve, plant and manage forests and trees for public benefits and quality of life.

The goals of the program listed in the strategic plan are to provide leadership, promote education and outreach, provide financial and technical assistance, build urban and community forestry capacity and plant trees. Also, we help you meet your own urban and community forestry goals.
