The Urban Forestry program is housed in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech. We have a broad portfolio of projects addressing the needs of urban forest managers, communities, and the public. Explore our current projects to see what’s going on now in our program.
We collaborate with municipalities, universities, and other stakeholders to create knowledge and resources to improve community forests. Virginia Tech’s widely recognized graduate and undergraduate programs offer opportunities for those interested in expanding professional opportunities or pursuing academic research.
