Interest in urban forestry is at an all-time high. Vibrant Cities Lab arms people with the most current and comprehensive resources related to greening cities. The dynamic website, managed by American Forests and the U.S. Forest Service, helps people create, implement and fund their urban forestry plans and related programs.

Vibrant Cities Lab includes a wealth of information, such as:

  • Research pertaining to a dozen topics of impact
  • Detailed toolkits on how to create an urban forestry program and measure progress
  • Case studies about urban forestry efforts in cities big and small nationwide
  • Guides to harness the full potential of trees to slow climate change and improve public health

The website is designed for trained urban foresters as well as those who don’t usually see the world through the prism of trees, such as city managers, professionals in other fields and community activists.
