Title: Observing urban forests in Australia

Authors: McPherson, E.G.

Date: 2009

Source Arborist News. 18(4): 18-19

Abstract: From February 13 to 28, 2009 I had the good fortune of visiting Australia, and touring urban forests in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, and Melbourne. My visits were only a day or two in each city, so in no case did I get an in-depth view of the urban forest resource or its management. The following observations are based on rather superficial field assessments and brief discussions with city arborists, researchers, and consultants.
