This report provides a retrospective look at the urban and community forestry movement since 1990, with a focus on the role of nonprofit organizations and community-based groups as key to regreening American cities.
This persuasive piece shows how urban forestry is really a part of the larger environmental, health, and economic issues in urban areas. The report is also designed to be an educational tool that community organizations can use to help sell the issue of urban forest restoration. With quotes from local and national leaders, we hope this report can serve as a case statement to support your local fundraising efforts, and help build the base of support for community reforestation nationwide.
ACT worked closely with the National Tree Trust on the content of the report – we hope you find it a useful tool for your organization.
