An Urban For­est Mas­ter Plan (UFMP) is a road map, pro­vid­ing detailed infor­ma­tion, rec­om­men­da­tions, and resources need­ed to effec­tive­ly and proac­tive­ly man­age and grow a city’s tree canopy. More impor­tant­ly it pro­vides a shared vision for the future of the urban for­est to inspire and engage stake­hold­ers in the care and pro­tec­tion of trees.

Com­plet­ed in 2012, the UFMP is Pittsburgh’s first mas­ter plan focused on the urban forest.

Many peo­ple were involved in the cre­ation of the Urban For­est Mas­ter Plan. Tree Pitts­burgh is grate­ful for the time and ded­i­ca­tion of all involved, espe­cial­ly the indi­vid­u­als on the Steer­ing Committee.
