Recruit High-Profile Champions

Urban forestry planning and management demands sustained effort, sometimes spanning multiple years and municipal administrations. Continued and aggressive support from public, private, and non-profit leadership can ensure that the process continues and succeeds. High-profile champions can mobilize and energize public constituencies to demand the quality of life that urban forests provide. These champions can be public officials (Seattle and Pittsburgh) or from high-profile business and community leaders. See how Baltimore organized its own green infrastructure program and other case studies in our Resources section.
