Trees provide numerous benefits that are essential to health and well-being of our city communities and families. Due to various changes in the landscape and environment, our city’s forests and their human benefits for quality of life are increasingly at risk. This presentation will illustrate how urban forests in NY and across the nation are changing, the growing need for tree care and replenishment, and how together we can establish more sustainable and healthy urban forests for future generations.
