CONNECTING SMART PEOPLE WITH SMART SOLUTIONS
Urban and community forestry managers have similar challenges. Available budgets, staff capacity, and professional expertise may be limiting factors for many municipal forestry programs. The Consortium has created a platform to help members find practical solutions to project challenges.The Urban Forestry Consortium is a network decision makers can count on to successfully support a sustainable urban forest.
Like many other city service cooperatives, such as trash pickup, salt trucks, public safety, and stormwater management, the Urban Forestry Consortium leverages partnerships and economy of scale to: 1) reduce costs 2) minimize time spent on administrative work and 3) maximize benefits of city trees. This unique partnership builds capacity, allowing cities of all sizes to confidently, proactively, and cost-effectively advance their urban and community forestry programs.
