    Urban and Commmunity Forestry


    Our members include arborists, urban planners, community activists, foresters, and nurserymen. OCT has no paid staff and relies on the commitment of its members, the cooperation of their employers, and the generosity of our donors to accomplish our mission.


    We assist community groups, local governments, and schools with our expertise and limited resources. Please use this website to learn about urban forestry and contact our members to partner with your local efforts in promoting, planting, and protecting an often overlooked and very valuable resource…our urban and community forests.
