Urban and Community Forestry is the fastest growing segment of the forestry profession, especially in the northeast, where the total expenditure of time and money on community forestry (nursery, planting, pruning, removals, and line clearance) exceeds that spent on woodlands.
The Rutgers Urban Forestry Program offers both a major option and a certificate program in Urban Forestry, and is a partner in several graduate programs and post-doctoral research projects.
The Urban Forestry Major Option is offered through the Environmental Planning & Design Major in the Landscape Architecture Department
The Urban Forestry Certificate is administered through the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources, but is designed for students in several curricula.
See the Academic Program Menu for more information.
