Trees provide many benefits in urban settings. They reduce air and noise pollution, help conserve water, save energy, and reduce soil erosion, saving money, enhancing businesses and providing beauty to the places where we live and work.
IDL staff and contracted community forestry assistants provide technical and educational assistance to help citizens and professionals with a wide range of actions ranging from ordinance creation to urban forestry program development, helping communities use trees and forest canopies strategically.
