Mission: To educate the community on the importance of trees while providing assistance for the proper planting and care of tree

WHAT ARE CITIZEN FORESTERS?

In 2010, the City of Phoenix adopted the Tree and Shade Master Plan that laid out the vision of a healthier, more livable and prosperous Phoenix through investment in the urban forest.

Citizen Foresters advocate for trees by promoting best practices regarding proper tree planting and maintenance techniques, while supporting community efforts to achieve tree and shade canopy goals.

TREE FACT:

Trees clean the air by absorbing pollutants in the air. They also shade cars and parking lots, reducing ozone emissions from vehicles.
