What does membership mean?


Members of the Urban Wood Network share these values:

  • Urban trees have their highest value while living. When these trees need to be removed they should be put to their highest and best uses to maximize their economic, environmental, and societal benefits for people in urban areas and beyond.

  • Sustainable recovery and the highest and best use of urban forest products are essential components of sustainable urban forestry.

  • Increased end user demand for urban forest products is essential to increasing demand all along the wood use chain and producing benefits throughout the urban forest sector.

  • The Urban Wood Network will effectively achieve its mission through collaboration and information sharing.

  • The Urban Wood Network is committed to work in partnership with the full diversity of stakeholders that share our vision and mission.
