Only available via Ecampus.


Urban forestry involves the planning, planting, and management of trees and related vegetation in and around cities. The urban forest is made up of the mosaic of the planted landscape and native forest remnants left behind as cities have developed. Urban forestry is an academic discipline that is related to forestry, horticulture, urban planning, landscape architecture, and land use planning. Urban foresters work in municipal governments, non-profit organizations, other public agencies, and the private sector.

The Graduate Certificate in Urban Forestry helps prepare students for leadership roles in a variety of different urban forestry programs. The course work covers important aspects of program management, policy development, and leadership. The capstone study allows the student to tailor the program to a particular interest within the field.
