Abstract or Summary
  • A regional urban forestry initiative, the Portland-Vancouver Metropolitan Regional Urban Forestry Strategy, was recently created in the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington region of the United States. To inform the development of this initiative, a needs assessment survey was sent to community officials and program managers in the 30 cities and four counties in the Portland-Vancouver region. The survey sought to identify current trends in urban forestry attitudes and practices, identifying program needs, barriers, and priorities. Despite both community officials and program managers expressing an avid interest in implementing and expanding tree programs, difficulty exists in implementing or expanding programs in the Portland-Vancouver region due issues including inadequate funding and lack of political and public support. Increased community education and the creation or revision of urban forest management plans and tree related ordinances are some of the highest priorities for their jurisdictions. Survey results will serve increase the success of this initiative and contribute to professional knowledge and urban forestry activities occurring in the region and across the country. Directions for future outreach can also be utilized by urban forest managers and natural resource professionals to improve urban tree programs and services offered in the Portland-Vancouver region.
