VANCOUVER – To guide the future of trees in our community, the city of Vancouver is developing an Urban Forestry Management Plan (UFMP). The city will kick off its community engagement efforts with two online “Let’s Talk Trees” workshops on Wed., Jan. 25 at noon and 6 p.m. to share more about the UFMP process and gather the community’s ideas, priorities and hopes for Vancouver’s tree future. 

“Trees are a valuable community asset, enhancing our parks and open spaces, cooling our neighborhoods, capturing air pollution, intercepting stormwater runoff and improving safety in our neighborhoods,” said Charles Ray, the city of Vancouver’s urban forester. “Growing and caring for our city’s urban tree canopy is no small task; a healthy tree canopy is the result of proper planning, management and community involvement.”

The UFMP process will engage the community in creating a vision for the future, so that trees can continue to benefit everyone who lives, works and plays in Vancouver for generations to come.

Project kickoff meetings will be held at two separate times on Jan. 25. Register to attend the session that works best for your schedule using the links below:

Participants are encouraged to bring their ideas and questions about the city’s urban forest and to share the registration links with others interested in providing input on the future of trees in Vancouver. An online community survey is also open throughout the month of January. To learn more and share your thoughts, visit www.beheardvancouver.org/ufmp. Funding to support this project was provided by the State of Washington Department of Natural Resources Urban and Community Forestry Program.
