Urban Forestry Board 

About Our Urban Forestry Program

The Urban Forestry Program is led by a board of volunteers. The board advises the City Council on the promotion, improvement and protection of the urban forest. The board's mission is to provide wise stewardship and leadership to ensure that we protect our existing trees and encourage proper selection, planting methods and maintenance of new trees, in order to continually enhance the quality of life in Frisco.

The board pledges to increase community understanding of the value of our urban forest and to take responsibility for the education and publicity of those values. Members participate in a variety of educational initiatives in cooperation with local elementary schools, the Boys' and Girls' Clubs and other groups throughout the city.
