The Faculty of Forestry at UBC possesses a wealth of expertise in urban forest issues. This expertise is not just applicable to research issues, but is a valuable resource to local municipalities to provide solutions to specific concerns.

Research provides the basis for informed decision making. UBC’s Urban Forestry Faculty is already working with local municipalities to effectively aid in the elimination of invasive plants and evaluate the benefits of commuting greenways and use greening to make our cities more resilient to climate change. UBC’s Faculty of Forestry has demonstrated experience to address a multitude of urban forestry issues.
