Welcome to the Urban Forest Management Plan Virtual Open House!

We invite you to learn more about the intent and goals behind creating an urban forest management plan. This webpage includes a short, 8-minute video that outlines the scope and process of developing the plan and provides an overview of results from the Urban Tree Canopy Assessment.

arrow-b Background

The City of Edmonds is working to develop an Urban Forest Management Plan that will primarily focus on managing trees on public properties and in public rights-of-way.  The plan will also consider some community-wide issues, for example, the community’s total tree canopy, the role of trees in critical wildlife habitat corridors throughout the city, and opportunities for public education.

Broad public input on the plan is welcome.  The Citizens Tree Board and Planning Board will also be involved.   Final review and plan adoption is a City Council decision.

A draft Urban Forest Management is expected to be ready in October for public review.  A final version should be ready for final action by early 2018.  Implementation of the plan would begin immediately after adoption.
