IUFRO-UNRI Urban Forestry Research

A Cooperative Vision for Urban Forestry Science and Exploration

About Us

Ongoing urbanization of society has led to the increasing importance of urban green spaces as contributors to the quality of the urban environment and urban life across the globe. Forest and tree resources have a wide range of socio-cultural, economic and environmental values. To optimize these values in a sustainable way, within the framework of a range of urban pressures and problems, integrated approaches and research for the planning design, selection establishment, and management of urban forests and trees are needed.

Please consider becoming part of the IUFRO urban forestry network. Your participation in IUFRO will greatly enhance UNRI’s ability for outreach, product dissemination and technology transfer efforts around the globe.
