Protecting Arkansas’s forests, and those who enjoy them, from wildland fire and natural hazards while promoting rural and urban forest health, stewardship, development, and conservation for all generations of Arkansans

Urban & Community Forestry

The Urban and Community Forestry Program assists communities, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions by providing tools and information to promote forest stewardship in communities. The Forestry Division provides assistance through district urban forestry representatives from the seven districts, many of whom are certified arborists. These individuals work closely with communities, schools, and non-profit staff and volunteers to increase public awareness about the value of community trees. 

This program is made possible through a grant from the USDA Forest Service
