An Urban Forestry Management Plan is a roadmap that creates a shared vision for the future of a tree canopy. The first step is to assess all the trees in the streets and parks. The collected data provides information to build a 40-year horizon plan that guides the City to proactively and effectively manage the urban forest, and provide for maximum, long-term benefits to the community.
Urban Forestry Grant
In May 2019, CalFire awarded Fremont $860,000. The money came from Proposition 68 and was granted to fund Urban & Community Forestry. This grant will allow us to complete an Urban Forestry Management Plan.
Over 75,000 Fremont trees were surveyed and plotted to a web-based tool called Tree Plotter. This process was completed in Sept. 2020.
