Urban and Community Forestry Programs
[Volunteers after a tree planting] Trees on public property belong to all of us. Proper management of this valuable resource is known as urban and community forestry. How is the urban forest in your community being cared for?

For more information on urban and community forestry contact your nearest USDA Forest Service office.

Tree City USA
One way you can get special recognition for urban forestry activities in your town is to apply for certification as a Tree City USA. Hundreds of cities and towns across the nation are achieving this status by meeting Tree City USA standards. Communities of any size can qualify, from less than one hundred to millions of people.
