Special Issue in Forests: Designing a Landscape for Better Mental Well-Being of Urban Forest Experiencers
Urban forests and urban greenspaces are vital infrastructure for healthy cities and healthy people. As urban populations continue to grow, maintaining and growing trees in places with concentrations of people is vital for sustainable cities. Finding ways to effectively, efficiently, and equitably plant, grow, and manage urban tree populations is important to realize the social and ecological values they provide and promote sustainable urban forests. In this issue we aim to invite papers that promote sustainable urban forests. We broadly define sustainable urban forests as meeting future needs of people through economic practice that promotes the social and ecologic needs of a community. We invite you to submit papers for publication with a focus on sustainable urban forestry and urban greenspace management. Topical areas should involve some aspect of sustainable practice through urban forestry and urban greenspace management through examples such as:
- Arboricultural practice
- Growth & longevity
- Inventory & assessment
- Planting practice
- Urban Forest Economics
- Urban tree health
We look forward to your submission for consideration for publication in this special issue. Papers will be sent to anonymous reviewers which will evaluate each submitted paper for acceptability for publication.
