Assessment of Municipal Urban and Community Programs

What is the state of municipal urban forestry in the U.S. today? Dr. Rich Hauer (U. of WI-Stevens Point) set out to answer this question (last explored in 1993) in his project, “Assessment of Municipal Urban and Community Programs in the United States and Evaluation of Associated Community Capacity.” His findings paint a picture of how communities are managing and funding their tree care operations and how that is changing over time. The project proposes developing a planning model to identify the ideal urban forest, create best management practices to build it, and help communities measure progress toward it.
