The City of Holyoke is working in partnership with Davey Resource Group, Community Circle, and Fair Forests Consulting to create a comprehensive strategy for protecting and expanding our city's trees. The Urban Forest Equity planning process will include a public tree inventory to learn more about our existing urban canopy, and a series of public forums and other activities to better understand community priorities for Holyoke's trees.

After a series of public forums, public tree inventory, and interviews with Holyoke Staff, the initial findings are ready for your review!
