City of Fredericton Urban Forest Management Plan

University of New Brunswick students in their fourth year of the Bachelor of Science in Forestry program are developing an urban forest management plan for the City of Fredericton as part of their degree. Students in the FOR 4020 Management Practicum course put their skills and knowledge together to produce a Management Plan for the City of Fredericton’s Urban Forest.

This collaboration is in its third year of partnership with the city and has been instrumental in providing students with a real client with real needs.

The plan will encompass the city’s park and trailside trees, providing information on their ecological, economic, and social values; and will highlight any concerns or maintenance requirements associated with these trees.
