The City of Ann Arbor first adopted an Urban & Community Forest Management Plan in 2014, recognizing the environmental, economic, and social importance of the city’s tree canopy while developing strategies to maintain its health and resilience.
Now, an update to the Plan will re-engage Ann Arbor residents in envisioning the future of the urban & community forest. Together with local organizations and forestry experts, we will outline current conditions, identify new opportunities and threats, and update the set of recommendations to establish a strong foundation for Tree Town’s future.
As community members who know your neighborhoods best, we need to know what you see! Our Ward Walks program offers several routes throughout the city for people to walk through, making note of tree cover and condition in commercial, residential, school, and park areas. Filling out the observation form, and attaching photos if desired, will give us a sense of how you're experiencing the urban forest.
Guided walks will be held on specific days in July for those who want a group experience. Register and view route maps on the website below.3333 Traverwood Dr., Ann Arbor. https://bit.ly/A2trees. Free. firstname.lastname@example.org. a2gov.org/Forestry. 734.794.6356.
