A survey done in 1975 by the Society of American Foresters Urban Forestry Working Group and the International Shade Tree Conference Urban Forestry Committee indicated that 29 four-year and graduate North American schools offering forestry instruction provide urban forestry-oriented education. Four other schools plan to start new urban forestry programs. Explanatory notes, course outlines, and curriculum guides submitted by respondents are available for information exchange with urban forestry instructors, inquiring students, and agencies employing urban foresters.
