ANSWER: Urban forestry is simply the management of trees in the urban landscape. It is separate from arboriculture in that in encompasses the management of trees as a whole system as well as on an individual basis. At Urban Forestry Associates, we see the urban forest for the trees and the forest. The urban forest serves many functions and silently provides benefits that are often unappreciated. However, without management, this functioning urban ecosystem can serve as a host for disease, a liability for property owners and a safety hazard for all. The staff at UFA is degreed in forest science and has a deep knowledge of tree anatomy, silviculture, ecology, tree pathology and soil science.
