Planning the Urban Forest: Ecology, Economy, and Community Development

"This report, prepared by the American Planning Association (APA) in collaboration with the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and American Forests (AF), and supported by the U.S. Forest Service, addresses the need for planners to adopt a green infrastructure approach and presents the technical means to incorporate trees into planning. Thirteen case studies illustrate best practices in planning for urban and community forestry." Baltimore County's program (first case study under Holistic Approaches) appears on pages 44-49; our program also inspired Appendix A on A Green Infrastructure Element in a Comprehensive Plan on p 125-129. PAS subscribers, who include planning agencies across the nation, will receive this report in mid-January. It will subsequently be available for individual purchase as well.
