The Urban and Community Forestry Committee is made up of the urban forestry coordinators from each of the 20 states, plus the District of Columbia, that are a part of NMSFA. The urban forestry coordinators are responsible for leading the state-level urban forestry programs in their respective states. Urban forestry is about the trees where people live, work and play – and so includes trees and forests in our towns, along our streets, in our parks and in our backyards. The state coordinators work with a wide range of constituents and partners, including local and Tribal governments, school districts, nonprofit and community based organizations focused on improving the stewardship of trees and the ecosystem services they provide.
