Rochester’s Urban Forest Master Plan Virtual Community Meeting

The Urban Forest Master Plan (UFMP) project provides a forum for community engagement, a shared vision, and a strategic, long-term road map for the management of Rochester’s urban forest resources. Community members are encouraged to join for an informational and engaging virtual public meeting.  There will be an opportunity hear the UFMP progress and timeline, learn about initial findings, and provide invaluable input to finalize the Plan’s vision, goals, and short- and long-term strategies for the management and enhancement of Rochester’s urban forest.

Urban forests and community health are inextricably linked; the better an urban forest, the greater a community’s health. A community that is engaged with its urban forest will responsibly plant, care for, and nurture its trees, while inspiring others to do the same and supporting the City’s urban forest management program. A thriving urban forest is only possible through a civic commitment and partnerships shared by all.
