What is Urban Forestry?
Urban Forestry is the science and comprehensive management of planting and maintaining trees in public spaces to ensure healthy, productive and safe trees to maximize their social, economic and ecological benefits.
Urban Forestry Management Plan
The overarching goal of Leesburg’s Urban Forestry Management Plan is to guide the Town’s efforts to recover the loss of tree canopy and enhance all tree-related benefits by recommending strategies and actions to improve the Town’s urban forest management in an equitable, economic, and sustainable manner.
