What is the urban & community forest?
The urban and community forest is all of the woody vegetation growing in an urban area, including trees, shrubs, and vines found along city streets, public parks and private property. The City is responsible for managing an urban forest that contains over 43,000 street trees and 6,600 park trees (mowed areas).
