Webinar Schedule

January 21, 2022: The Economic Footprint & Quality of Life Benefits of Urban Forestry

Urban trees are a powerful force in America. They create jobs and opportunity. They cool our homes, increase property values, and deliver important benefits to society. Now, in a first-of-its-kind study, researchers at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Bureau of Business Research, in cooperation with the Arbor Day Foundation and the USDA Forest Service, have quantified the value of the urban forestry sector to our national economy and our quality of life.

To compile the report, a consistent methodology is used across all states to provide both national results and comparisons among the states. The methodology also relies on administrative data from the U.S. Bureau of Census and the Arbor Day Foundation.

Eric Thompson, Karl H. Nelson Professor of Economics, the director of the Bureau and a co-author of the final report, will host this webinar session. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts during the Q&A session.
