State of the Urban Forest Report

The urban forest of Denton plays a crucial role in the livability and sustainability of the city. Denton’s 3.5 million trees impact everything from economic development to the overall health of the people that live, work, and play in Denton every day. A more comprehensive understanding about the urban forest’s structure, function, and associated value can promote effective policy development, sound management planning, and help set and anticipate future budgetary requirements. During the summer of 2016 the City of Denton and Keep Denton Beautiful partnered with Preservation Tree Services, Inc., Texas Trees Foundation, and Plan-It Geo, Inc. to perform the most detailed and comprehensive study of Denton’s urban forest resource ever completed. The State of the Denton Urban Forest Report provides detailed information to help Denton advance their understanding of their urban tree population and provides the framework to make more informed decisions about the future management of this important community asset. The data provided here lays the ground work for Denton becoming a more resilient city that is greener, cleaner, and cooler.
