Trees & Urban Planning/Design
Please help California ReLeaf strengthen our urban forests by sharing your insights and practices regarding the intersection of urban trees and your work as a planner, urban designer, landscape architect, or other type of urban design professional. We are asking you to take this short 6 minute survey to answer 12 questions. We'd like to have your response pretty pronto -- by late May / Early June. Thank you!

The goal of the survey is to help urban forest nonprofits & professionals better understand the priorities, concerns, and perspectives of planners and urban design professionals, so that together we can create healthier, more sustainable and appealing urban neighborhoods.

Results of the survey will be presented in a webinar jointly sponsored by the California Chapter of the American Planning Association and California ReLeaf. Resources to help urban forest nonprofits better understand the perspective of planners and urban design professionals will be provided on California ReLeaf's website at

California ReLeaf is the umbrella organization for nearly 100 urban forest nonprofits and community benefits organizations throughout the state to whom ReLeaf provides education, advocacy, and pass-through grants. Their mission is to empower grassroots efforts and build strategic partnerships that preserve, protect, and enhance California’s urban and community forests.

Thank you in advance for completing this survey.
If you have any questions, please contact Cindy Blain at or 916.497.0034.
