  • Urban forestry and the greening of Canadian cities - Spacing National
    urban forestry requires more than simply translating rural land management practices into an urban setting In particular operating in an urban environment requires a high degree of engagement and consultation with local people and organizations Conventional forestry principles are combined with modern information management and communications tools to achieve a broad range of social ecological and economic benefits It is these benefits that are attracting the attention of government agencies across the country This spring researchers at the University of British Columbia received support from the Canadian Forest Service to review the various ecological social and economic benefits of urban forests and develop a better understanding of the future of urban forestry in Canada The Social and Economic Values of Canada s Urban Forests A National Synthesis unearthed a wealth of information about the benefits of urban forests and identified numerous opportunities for government and public involvement in urban forestry Trees are known to improve air quality an important service in an urban setting that can improve the health and longevity of residents They also moderate temperature by providing shade and cooling in the summertime and reducing heat loss by winds in the winter which translates into lower residential energy bills and lower carbon dioxide emissions associated with energy use Trees also reduce costs to municipalities by helping rainwater to infiltrate into the soil thereby lessening wear and tear on stormwater infrastructure And urban forests can produce substantial economic benefits by raising local property values and occupancy rates attracting shoppers to local business districts and drawing recreational visitors and tourists To date most research on urban forests has occurred outside of Canada leaving municipal governments with more questions than answers when it comes to planning and managing their forests Social and cultural preferences strongly influence the benefits of urban forests to residents while some inferences can be made based on research from other countries Canada s urban population undoubtedly unique Municipalities need better information in order to build a strong business case for funding urban forestry programs and defending urban forests from threats of residential commercial and infrastructure development So who will do this important work To meet the growing demand for urban forestry professionals colleges and universities across Canada and the USA are developing programs to help students develop skills ranging from planning geographic data management communication outreach and extension in addition to tree selection planting and maintenance For example the University of Toronto hosts an annual urban forestry field course Fleming College has offered an Urban Forestry Certificate program since 2012 and the University of British Columbia will launch its full undergraduate degree program in Urban Forestry this September In the field of urban forestry the time is ripe for innovation Canadians just need to pluck the fruit from the tree Ngaio Hotte is a Resource Economist and Facilitator affiliated with the Department of Forest Resources Management in the Faculty of Forestry at the University of British Columbia She was the lead author of the report The Social
