Urban Forestry Explained | One Tree Planted
Urban forestry is the act of maintaining, protecting, and in One Tree Planted’s case — planting — urban forests. All within the backdrop of a rapidly changing landscape. Each individual urban tree is different in species and size, yet all link together to form urban forests. They are powerhouses for providing ecosystem services such as air pollution removal, stormwater pollution capture, carbon sequestration, and urban heat regulation, and form essential green infrastructure for any healthy, vibrant community.
One Tree Planted has a rapidly growing Urban Forestry program that works with communities around the globe to plant trees in neighborhoods that need them the most. We partner with local organizations to implement projects and provide pass-through funding for trees, labor, and project maintenance, while also providing overall project support, impact assurance, and monitoring.

Urban Forestry Explained provides insight into the importance of Urban Forestry, as well as project case studies shared by our own Urban Forestry Project Manager, Nilanjana Saha.
Urban trees are the hardest working trees we plant, and the real measurement isn’t the cost per tree, or even the number of trees planted: it’s the number of people whose daily lives are positively impacted.
We’re proud to work together with amazing organizations around the world to plant high impact urban trees where they’re needed most.
