The trees, vegetation, and green spaces that make up America’s urban forests are essential contributors to virtually every measure of public well-being.

From improving air and water quality, to advancing human health and safety, to promoting economic development and social equity, SUFC’s mission is to convene and mobilize our diverse member network to foster thriving communities through healthy urban and community forests.
