Preferred Term:

urban forests

Urban forests include the trees in our yards, parks, public spaces, and along our streets. Though we don’t often think of them as forests, they provide many forest benefits, such as cleaner air and water. In addition to environmental benefits, urban forests increase property values, reduce home energy costs, block UV radiation, buffer wind and noise, provide shade and beautify our neighborhoods.
