About Us

Delaware’s Urban and Community Forestry Program is dedicated to preserving and enhancing Delaware’s community forests, which play a critical role in our quality of life. The trees in Delaware’s communities can improve air and water quality, beautify the landscape and increase property values, mitigate stormwater run-off and soil erosion, save on heating and cooling costs, and foster a general sense of well-being.
