URBAN FOREST
As more cities recognize the impacts
of the collective community
and urban forest on everything
from public health and equity to
climate resilience, municipalities
nationwide are committing to increasing
their urban tree canopies.
However, as many communities
can tell you, it is one thing to set
a goal; it is quite another to put
the proper structure in place to see
those goals through.
Recognizing the growing imperative
to better understand and support
a healthy, equitable canopy for
the community, the city and counPrivate
investment in the urban tree
canopy adjacent to development blends
seamlessly with public realm plazas managed
by the City of Denver.
ty of Denver engaged nationallyrecognized
landscape architecture,
urban planning and design firms
Dig Studio and Design Workshop,
along with master's program students
from the University of Colorado,
to conduct research into best
practices for enhancing equitable
and sustainable outcomes in urban
forestry.
The student research had two
primary goals: to learn promising
practices being used in other cities
to support more equitable urban
forestry programs, and to learn
how inter-agency and external
collaboration might strengthen
and clarify roles and responsibilities
for urban forestry programs.
Fifty-three stakeholders were interviewed
from 15 cities and national
organizations as part of
this initial effort.
From there, the group conducted
interdepartmental interviews
to identify opportunities and challenges,
diving deeper into cities
that the student research revealed
closely aligned with the challenges
Denver faces. This culminated
in four city representatives from
Portland, Oregon; Boise, Idaho;
Cincinnati; and Pittsburgh being
invited as guests to share forestry
best practices at a spring 2022
workshop with City of Denver
department leaders, nonprofits,
city council members and community
stakeholders.
The results of this effort are now
