AFC works with agencies, organizations and residents to prevent and suppress wildfires, control forest insects and disease, grow and distribute trees, and gather and disseminate information concerning the growth, use and renewal of forests.

Community Forestry

Urban forests improve air quality, absorb rainwater and improve biodiversity. Green spaces in our communities also provide aesthetic, social and financial benefits. AFC Urban Forestry Representatives work with community leaders to plant and maintain trees, and promote the many benefits trees provide.
