Who is the Sustainable Urban Forests Coalition

We are the nation’s only network of nonprofits, businesses, associations, foundations and others working to advance sound, effective urban forest policy and practices.

Our broad and growing membership represents urban planners, educators, arborists, landscape architects, public works and utility associations, air and water quality experts, foresters, scientists, health professionals, tree care companies, landscape and nursery associations, conservationists, and community advocates.

Our mission is to convene and mobilize this diverse network of national organizations to foster thriving communities through healthy urban and community forests.

SUFC members collaborate to:

  • Advocate at the national, regional, local and neighborhood levels to increase tangible support for urban forests.
  • Leverage resources and knowledge among a growing team of organizations promoting healthier, more resilient communities.
  • Educate diverse audiences about the value and need for healthy trees in our cities, towns and suburbs.
