Abstract

Community involvement in urban forestry often is viewed as simply enlisting volunteers to supply labor for planting or restoration projects. Such activity is a narrow interpretation of what community involvement should be. Community involvement must include residents who will be impacted by a project, involve them early and throughout the process, and ensure some citizen control over the process. Educational efforts should be considered as two way; urban natural resource professionals may have as much to learn and as great a need to change perspectives as the community impacted by a project.
