Green infrastructure and urban forestry installments must be maintained, even after the initial construction project has ended. In order for this to occur, it is important to sustain the grassroots support you created at the start of your project. By keeping local community members engaged, volunteer groups can emerge to contribute towards maintenance. Perhaps there is a local nonprofit that shares an interest in these types of projects that you could team up with as well.
Additionally, long-term funding is an issue that must be addressed in order for your plan to be a success. Each state and municipality has access to different resources that may aid in this process; therefore, it is worth taking some time to do additional research to identify opportunities specific to your region. The following resources should be used to create a strategy for sustaining the green infrastructure and urban forestry installments in your community.
