Reports Show Economic Importance of Urban Forestry in Northeast and Midwest
Urban Forestry Contributes $34.7 billion in the Northeast and Midwest
Trees in our cities and suburbs contribute to local and regional economies by supporting jobs and other economic activities. For decades, we have known urban trees provide critical ecosystem services, environmental benefits and can improve human health. The following regional report is the first of its kind to pull urban-forestry-specific economic numbers out of broader green industry data.
This regional report is an effort of states participating in the Northeast-Midwest State Forest Alliance (NMSFA), Urban and Community Forestry Committee (UCFC) to compile meaningful information about the urban forestry resource in the Northeast-Midwest region.
