What is an urban forest?
An urban forest consists of all of the vegetation within an urban area, both planted and naturally occurring. In Cincinnati, the urban forest includes street trees, city parks, and wooded rights-of-way.
Who are we?
The Urban Forestry program has been operating since 1981 with funding provided by an annual assessment based upon footage upon the right-of-way. Urban Forestry consists of four foresters across four districts, as well as an in-house tree technician crew that manages smaller pruning, planting and tree removal jobs in the right-of-way.
