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 ISA 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. 

Free Tree Fridays

In celebration of Arbor Day, the Urban & Community Forestry program will be sponsoring their 2nd Annual “Free Tree Fridays” campaign from the Friday before Arkansas Arbor Day (celebrated on Monday, March 21st) until National Arbor Day (Friday, April 29th). Bare root hardwood seedling giveaways will be held at various locations across the state every Friday during the campaign. Please check here for the schedule of giveaway dates and locations, which will be updated as new locations are added. Those attending the events may select up to five seedlings (species will vary at each location). Planting instructions will be included.

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