URBAN FOREST planning
The urban forest includes the trees and vegetation found on both public and privately-owned lands within a city. Other elements such as plants, water, soil, micro-organisms and wildlife are also part of this forest community. Management of the urban forest - and the valuable functions it provides - plays a central role in the creation of sustainable urban environments.
Our team's success in urban forest planning and the development of comprehensive management strategies is built from specific expertise in the field and an interdisciplinary approach involving urban foresters, planners, designers, biologists, arborists and GIS specialists.
Our depth of experience results in urban forest management plans that specifically respond to local conditions and aspirations, strategically leverage limited resources, reflect best practices and clearly communicate strategies and measurable actions.
Specific urban forest planning capacities include:
> URBAN FOREST / CANOPY INVENTORY
> ECOSYSTEM SERVICE ASSESSMENTS (iTREE)
> REGULATORY POLICY / CONTEXT REVIEW
> COMMUNITY CONSULTATION + VISIONING + GOAL SETTING
> PLANNING FRAMEWORKS FOR URBAN FOREST MANAGEMENT
> URBAN FOREST DEVELOPMENT PLANS / PRECINCT PLANS
> IMPLEMENTATION PLANS + MEASURES OF SUCCESS
> URBAN FOREST PLANTING GUIDELINES + BEST PRACTICES
