Urban Forest Equity Plan

*Bienvenidos - Para traducir esta página, haga clic en el icono del globo y seleccione su idioma.*

 

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.

 

Feedback on Draft Key Recommendations

After a series of public forums, public tree inventory, and interviews with Holyoke Staff, the initial findings are ready for your review!
Please follow the following link to review key recommendations and take a brief survey. Your responses will be incredibly helpful for drafting the final plan. Thanks for caring about Holyoke's trees!
