Urban forests are vital to the health of people and nature. It is easy to take for granted the trees that line our streets and shade our homes, or the areas where we enjoy spending time outdoors in our community.
In our highly urbanized world, urban forests are often the only habitat available for local wildlife and migrating birds. Invasive tree pests threaten the health of our urban forests.
Help protect your urban forests and adopt a tree to monitor for signs of invasive pests threatening our region.
If the tree you adopt shows any of the signs described below, please take a photo of the suspected sign, note the location of the tree, and email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of (adopt a tree).
