Urban Forestry at the Crossroads
Abstract:Urban forestry continues to gain acceptance by the public as a concept and in practice. With few exceptions, foresters have provided limited amounts of expertise and leadership. Participation by them and by other specialists can strengthen programs and help develop, among city residents, a renewable-resource ethic whose effects reach for beyond the city limits.
