Urban and Community Forestry

The mission of the Washington State Urban and Community Forestry Council is to provide leadership to create a self-sustaining urban and community forestry program that preserves, plants, and manages forests and trees for public benefits and quality of life. The program does this by teaching citizens and decision-makers about the economic, environmental, psychological, and aesthetic benefits of trees. The program also helps local governments, citizen groups, and volunteers plant and sustain healthy trees and vegetation throughout Washington. The council was established under RCW 76.15 to advise the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in carrying out the Washington State Urban and Community Forestry Program.
