What California Climate Policy Means for Urban Forests
Greg McPherson, USDA Forest Service
John Melvin, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CALFIRE)
Chuck Mills, California ReLeaf

California’s climate change policy is having a profound impact on the science, planning, and practice of urban forestry. The Governor’s new budget proposal includes $50 million to the state forestry agency, CAL FIRE, of which 36% is for urban and community forestry from cap-and-trade auction revenues. These funds provide new opportunities to address inequities in tree canopy, enhance the capacity of local programs, and increase the resilience of urban forests. The funds also come with higher expectations for effectiveness. We will present examples of how new policies, research, partnerships, and programs are changing urban forestry in California.
