Description: The vision for urban and community forestry in the Northeastern Area has remained essentially constant since 1990, "...to achieve community sustainability and an enhanced quality of life through stewardship of urban and community forests and related natural resources." Implied in this statement is full participation by all those who affect or are affected by decisions relating to natural resources and their management in urban areas. This reflects a fundamental shift in responsibility from government to individual citizens to accept a key role for the stewardship of critical natural systems that sustain our collective well being. Natural systems and processes provide an incalculable service to society in terms of mitigating air and water pollution, reducing flooding, providing abundant clean water, agricultural pollination, and maintaining essential biological diversity. These natural systems require management and care in populated areas if they are to continue to function. The responsibility for management is complex and must be shared among government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and citizens from all walks of life.
