Human populations are continuously increasing in urban areas around the globe. Forests are critical components of eco-cities and play an important role in improving people’s quality of life. Therefore, it is imperative that people sustainably manage urban forest ecosystems. Join the Alabama Cooperative Extension System for the City Forests Webinar Series to learn about different aspects of managing trees and forest ecosystems in urban areas.
