Abstract

Trees in cities can improve environmental quality and human health. Unfortunately, little is known about the urban forest resource and what and how it contributes to local, regional, and national societies and economies. To better understand the urban forest resource and its value, the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Health Monitoring Program initiated a pilot program to assess urban forests in several States. State urban forest functions and values were analyzed using the Urban Forest Effects (UFORE) Model (www.ufore.org, www.itreetools.org). Results from this report should be viewed as a demonstration of the value of collecting and analyzing urban forest data. These data can be used to advance understanding of urban forests and their management to improve human health and environmental quality in urban areas.
