TION

Urban forestryis the careful care and


management ofurban forests, i.e., tree
populations inurbansettings for the purpose
of improving theurbanenvironment.Urban
forestryadvocates the role of trees as a
critical part of theurbaninfrastructure.

URBANIZATION ON
ENVIRONMENT
Urbanization refers to general increase in population and the
amount of industrialization of a settlement. Its adverse
effects on the Environment are:
1. Erosion and other changes in land quality: Rapid
development can result in very high levels of erosion and
sedimentation in river channels.
2. Pollution :
Pollutants are often dispersed across cities or concentrated in
industrial areas or waste sites.
3. Water:
The water quality has degraded with time due to urbanization
that ultimately leads to increased sedimentation there by also
increasing the pollutant in run-off
4. Eradication of Habitats of Native Species:
There is also complete eradication of habitats as an outcome
of urbanization and native species are pushed out of cities

Trees

make our cities more attractive and


provide many ecosystem services, including
air quality improvement, energy
conservation, storm water interception, and
atmospheric carbon dioxide reduction.
Trees produce oxygen, clean the air and
reduce global warming
Trees and sidewalk gardens reduce flooding
and water pollution
The presence of trees reduces the speed of
drivers, and reduces the frequency and
severity of crashes.

PRACTICING URBAN
FORESTRY
Urban

forestry is a practical discipline,


which includestree planting, care, and
protection, and the overall
management of trees as a collective
resource.
The urban environment can present
many arboricultural challenges such as
limitedrootandcanopyspace, poor
soil quality, deficiency or excess of
water and light, heat, pollution,
mechanical and chemical damage to
trees, and mitigation of tree-related

OF URBAN
FORESTRY
Management challenges for urban forestry
include maintaining a tree and planting site
inventory, quantifying and maximizing the
benefits of trees, minimizing costs, obtaining
and maintaining public support and funding,
and establishing laws and policies for trees on
public and on private land.
Urban forestry presents many social issues that
require addressing to allow urban forestry to be
seen by the many as an advantage rather than
a curse on their environment. Social issues
include under funding which leads to
inadequate maintenance of urban trees.

FORESTRY

Inadequate space is allowed for the root system.


Poor soil is used when planting specimens.
Incorrect and neglected staking leads to bark
damage.
Larger, more mature trees are often used to
provide scale and a sense of establishment to a
scheme. These trees grow more slowly and do
not thrive in alien soils whilst smaller specimens
can adapt more readily to existing conditions.
Lack of information on the tolerances of urban
tree cultivars to environmental constraints.
Too few communities have working tree
inventories and very few have urban forest
management plans.
