The City of Los Angeles is in the initial stages of developing an Urban Forest Management Plan (UFMP) funded by a grant from CAL FIRE. The goal of the UFMP is to help guide the planting, care, protection, and sustainability of the City’s urban trees.

To ensure this plan considers and incorporates resident priorities, the following survey is provided for your voice to be heard. We want to know where focus should be placed as the UFMP is developed. This survey will be collecting responses through August 10, 2018.
