Urban Forest Management Plan

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.

We invite you to learn more about the intent and goals behind creating an urban forest management plan. This webpage includes press releases, project documents, information from previous meetings, and a schedule of future meetings as they become available.  

Broad public input on the plan is welcome. The Citizens Tree Board and Planning Board will be involved. Final review and plan adoption is a City Council decision. Implementation of the plan would begin immediately after adoption.
