Urban and Community Forestry

Urban and Community Forestry

Urban trees are an important part of the local ecosystem providing shelter, food, and other benefits to nearby creatures – including us! As populations in cities and towns continue to grow, creating and caring for green infrastructure (like trees) is increasingly important. Trees help make cities livable – providing shade, clean air, clean water, and other useful benefits for human and environmental health.

Urban and Community Forestry Program

Virginia Department of Forestry’s Urban and Community Forestry Program fosters partnerships between government agencies, businesses, academic institutions and nonprofit organizations to ensure trees in our communities receive necessary care, long into the future. We provide assistance including education, community engagement, tree selection, and grants for tree planting and local program development.

These resources and others are available for municipalities and local governments to promote a healthy tree canopy. The USDA Forest Service Urban and Community Forestry Program directly supports this state program delivered in all 59 states and U.S. territories. The USDA Forest Service Southern Region Urban and Community Forestry Program supports the southern states’ urban forestry programs.

Fire Adaptive Landscaping for Native Habitats and Wildlife in the Southern Coastal Plain
Fire Adaptive Landscaping for Native Habitats and Wildlife in the Southern Coastal Plain

Book was prepared by the Georgia Forestry Commission, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Coastal Wildscapes, and Firewise Communities to provide every resident and business owner has the opportunity to enhance wildlife habitat and natural ecological systems by maintaining, or where necessary, restoring connectivity to the surrounding forests and other natural communities through landscaping and gardening activities. They can also address the very important issues of water conservation and loss of habitat from invasive species by using native plants and avoiding exotic plants when deciding what to plant. We invite all coastal plain individuals and communities to emphasize creative solutions to protect native habitats and wildlife while connecting with nature and achieving Firewise principals. This publication was created to give everyday people and everyday businesses guidelines for landscaping with these goals in mind.
