Promoting Urban and Community Forestry through Staffing, Volunteer Groups, Tree Boards and Ordinances

The success of community forests relies on good management by municipal staff, volunteer groups, and tree boards framed around well-written ordinances. This presentation will explore the role of these components in promoting a healthy community forest. Discussion will include the role Extension educators can play in promoting community forestry through educational programs as well as by direct assistance to communities in the development of effective ordinances and establishment of tree boards. Examples will be provided along with resources on how to promote and develop effective community forestry programs.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
