Managing Forests as an Ecosystem

We define a forest as a composition of many natural elements: not just trees, but also their ecological community, wildlife, the belowground community, rivers, wetlands, and the marine zone. The inclusion of the word urban includes other factors to our urban forest narrative, namely planning and design aspects, green infrastructure, social and economic factors, public health and safety.

Holistic Approach to Land Stewardship

Peninsula Urban Forestry manages trees and vegetation holistically. We discipline ourselves in the science and practice of plant biology, ecology, air quality, and the environmental and social benefits of plants. ​Our passion is the interface between person and plant; community and green space.

Community Infrastructure

Urban trees and vegetation are a vital part of a community infrastructure. Public trees, parks, street trees, green resources, air quality, and rain-water are all pieces of our functioning urban ecosystem. Trees improve air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and other pollutants and by releasing oxygen. They intercept harmful airborne particles and muffle urban noise. Their shade and transpiration cool the surrounding air and reduce heating and cooling costs of buildings. These tree benefits grow exponentially with age. This means proper tree planning from the beginning will offer greater rewards for generations to come.
