A survey is on its way to the email inboxes of NYS municipalities which will inform the urban forestry support programs for communities going forward. Former longtime NYSUFC Board Member and now Forest Resources & Arboriculture PhD Student Rebecca Hargrave is heading this up in conjunction with the NYSUFC and NYSDEC. 

Municipal Urban Forest Management Survey
Attention NYS Communities: the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Urban and Community Forestry Program and the New York State Urban Forestry Council have partnered with the University of Massachusetts Amherst to investigate the status and needs of municipal street tree and urban forest management programs. An online survey will be emailed to the official or employee responsible for street trees or to the mayor, supervisor, or clerk. Please be on the lookout for the email. If your community does not receive an email, contact Rebecca Hargrave at jhargrave@umass.edu<mailto:jhargrave@umass.edu>. The survey results will be used to inform urban forestry support programs across the state.
