National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council

The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (NUCFAC) is an appointed advisory council to the Secretary of Agriculture on urban forestry and related issues. The 1990 Farm Bill created NUCFAC to bring together the wide variety of voices raised about a common concern: the present health and future preservation of America's urban forests. NUCFAC was founded to synthesize the full spectrum of views into a consistent vision, as a foundation for practical policy on urban forestry.

The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council is Developing the Next Ten Year Action Plan (2016-2026)

The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council invites the public to vote and comment on the first phase of the process to develop the next Ten Year Action Plan (2016-2026). We have identified fourteen Key Issues through interviews and historical data. The facilitator for the process is asking the public to rank and comment about these issues.

Go to the Ten-Year Urban Forestry Action Plan website to comment and learn more about the process. Participants that engage in the process will be asked to sign up and log into the website.

A participant may rank some or all of the Key Issues. They may continue and comment on the issues most important to them and may submit a new issue to consider. There are also opportunities to engage with other participants to discuss a particular issue. To learn more about the Key Issues and process, download a copy of the report, Ten-Year Urban Forestry Action Plan Key Issues Report (PDF, 5.5 MB)…

Your ideas will guide funding for the next decade of Urban and Community Forestry!
