The Pennsylvania Urban & Community Forestry Council was established in 1992 to serve in an advisory capacity to the Commonwealth’s State Forester. The Council has since become a 501(C)3 entity providing it greater flexibility in partnerships with opportunities to provide community and urban forestry grants to municipalities and non-profit entities.
The Pennsylvania Urban & Community Forestry Council receives support from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and works closely with the Bureau of Forestry and Penn State Extension to carryout the statewide urban forestry program, TreeVitalize.
The Council also works with the U.S. Forest Service, Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and others across the state. These ongoing partnerships create a dynamic network of dedicated experts concerned with the health and vitality of the trees of Pennsylvania.
