Sustaining America’s Urban Trees and Forests.
While the aesthetic values of urban forests might be eye-catching, the many critical services they provide tend to be overlooked. In addition to being attractive, urban forests provide a myriad of essential services to the more than 220 million people who live in urban areas in the United States (U.S. Census Bureau 2001)—including reduced energy use, improved water quality, diverse wildlife habitat, and increased human health and well-being. Urban forests are an essential component of America’s “green infrastructure” and their benefits extend well beyond the cities and towns where they are located.
