Webinar: Assessing Sustainability for Agricultural and Urban Forests 
Society is increasingly realizing the value of individual trees and forested areas found on urban, suburban, and agricultural lands, and research continues to reveal new and sometimes surprising ways in which trees in the places where we live and work provide tangible benefits for people. At the same time, the information base for understanding the nature and extent of these resources is only in the beginning stages of development.

USDA's Forest Service invites you to join a webinar exploring issues related to agricultural and urban forests and their measurement based on findings from the recently-released Forest Service report "Assessing the Sustainability of Agricultural and Urban Forests in the United States."
