We want your input on taking care of our urban forest! The City’s urban forest is made up of trees growing on private property, along City streets, and in parks. Chico has developed a Draft Urban Forest Master Plan (UFMP), which will guide the City and tree care professionals to proactively and effectively manage our trees. The success of the UFMP relies on your input!

Comments on the Draft UFMP can be emailed to  Comments are due by January 12, 2023.
