Urban Forestry

Urban forests are defined as parks, trails and gardens that clean our air, attract tourists, boost property values and drive down local energy costs. According to a federally-funded survey, Seattle is among the nation's 10 best cities for them. Other cities that make the cut by not cutting down trees include Austin, Charlotte, Denver, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York City, Portland, Sacramento and Washington, D.C. [USA Today]
