Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite authors to submit a paper to a Special Issue of Forests entitled “The Benefits of the Urban Forest under Global Change”. Recent research has identified a range of urban tree benefits including, but not limited to, improved air quality, storm-water management, energy conservation, carbon sequestration, crime prevention, and improved public health. We welcome papers that expand our understanding of the benefits that the urban trees provide us or identify management strategies to optimize these benefits. In particular, we are interested in how management adapts to global changes such as climate change or the spread of invasive species. Papers can be original research, reviews, or commentaries.
