North American forests and forest management institutions are experiencing a wide range of significant ecological disturbances and socioeconomic changes, which point to the need for enhanced resilience.
The evidence is mounting around the compounding benefits of the urban forest. We know trees in cities clean air and water, reduce energy demands, and improve the people's overall quality of life.
New research shows that trees communicate with one another and share nutrients through their roots! They need each other. In urban areas, trees also help us with health, economic and social benefits. They are part of our culture. We need them.
