This action guide is designed to help urban foresters and others working in urban green spaces promote human health and climate benefits of urban forests while minimizing risks from climate change, such as sea level rise and more frequent and extreme weather events. It outlines a process to create an urban forestry project to optimize for climate and health outcomes. The guide will help managers reduce climate risks and proactively respond to changing conditions while also providing important benefits to the health and well-being of their communities.
