Title: Urban forestry: The final frontier?
Author: McPherson, E.G.;
Source: Journal of Forestry. 101: 20-25
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Forestry and urban forestry have more in common than practitioners in either field may think. The two disciplines could each take better advantage of the other’s expertise, such as foresters' impressive range of scientific theory and technological sophistication, and urban foresters' experience in working with diverse stakeholders in the public arena. The wildland-urban interface is geographic center of convergence, and the nexus of forest ecology and human ecology will become forestry's next frontier—where forestry and urban forestry join together to construct healthier habitats for humans.
Keywords: silviculture, wildland-urban interface
