City Trees: Journal of the Society of Municipal Arborists
We work in places of incredible diversity - of people and landscapes. Embracing this diversity in all its forms helps us to enhance the reach and relevance of our public programs and improve our management practices. How can municipal arborists and urban foresters meaningfully connect with and be informed by different ways of seeing, knowing, thinking, valuing, and approaching the work of caring for our urban and community forests? This article spotlights principles and pathways for successful community engagement, organizing, and two-way learning discovered through our research, and begins a conversation we hope to catalyze for future editions of City Trees.
