Urban and Community Forestry offers citizens technical assistance to plant, maintain, and restore the health of community trees.  Oklahoma Forestry Services foresters assist cities and towns to develop long-range forestry programs to conserve, enhance, and protect their urban forest.

Communities have unique and valuable forests, growing along streets, greenbelts, parks and our own backyards.  Urban forests enhance our quality of life in numerous ways:

  • Cleaning the air we breathe
  • Raising real estate values
  • Ensuring high quality drinking water
  • Modifying temperature extremes
  • Reducing noise pollution
  • Improving the aesthetics of Oklahoma's landscape
