The Rutgers Urban Forestry Outreach Program works with several other organizations throughout New Jersey and the northeast. Our goal is to connect the personnel and programs at Rutgers to the Center for Resilient Landscapes, the NJ Urban & Community Forestry Program, and the community of consultants and shade tree program volunteers in New Jersey. It is our hope that by helping to build contacts and connections, the information and tools developed through these programs will be better and more fully utilized in the management of local shade tree resources.
We maintain contacts with professional organizations representing Urban Forestry and Arboricultural industry in New Jersey in order to better promote the industry to our students, and to help match students in the Urban Forestry Major Option and Urban Forestry Certificate programs with internship opportunities and work placement.
