Over 80 percent of the U.S. population lives in urban or urbanizing areas.  Change in land cover from agriculture and forest land to developed land increases the amount of impervious surfaces, loss of forest cover, stormwater runoff, and pollution levels for both air and water.  Urbanization in the United States is projected to continue to increase in the near future.  The Urban Forestry Institute (UFI) will provide the most up-to-date tools and techniques to address these issues related to urbanization and improve the planning, management of our built environments.

The 2013 Urban Forestry Institute is a weeklong, intensive training workshop that will take place in Nashville, TN, May 6 – 10, 2013.  The workshop is designed to provide state agency foresters, municipal planners, and other related professionals working in natural resources with in-depth, current urban and interface natural resource management education and training.  This training will enable these professionals to better assist municipalities in planning to lessen the effects of changing land use and urbanization on the environment.  The Institute will include formal presentations and case studies from some of the leading researchers and practitioners in the urban forestry/urban planning field.  Focusing on urban forest adaptive management, planning, and technology, the workshop will walk participants through the urban natural resources planning process and provide abundant hands-on management plan writing exercises.
