Grants and Contracts Details


We created the ‘Healthy Trees – Healthy People’ Tool to enhance capacity for exotic pest detection and to increase physical activity and improve the health of users and the health of urban trees, by providing infrastructure to expand public interest in the urban tree canopy. Our tool is designed to enhance engagement with the urban tree canopy and increase physical activity of participants, while improving tree health through tree health assessments and pest detection. Protecting and engaging with our urban forests is key to enhancing their contributions, including those that provide health benefits to humans. Outreach and education deliverables include maps of active fitness walks focusing on urban trees, and surveys evaluating human health, knowledge of tree health, and invasive species.
