"The trees are telling us what is wrong, we must open our eyes and listen."

The Manitoba Urban Forest Council was formed by several individuals from various sectors of the urban forest industry including municipalities, the provincial government, the International Society of Arboriculture, educational institutions and the arboriculture industry.

Leading up to the formation of the Council, a combination of events and changes highlighted the need for a collective organization to represent the urban forestry industry in Manitoba that connects people and combines efforts to protect and manage urban forests in our communities.
