Urban Forestry & Urban Greening
Urban Forestry and Urban Greening is a refereed, international journal aimed at presenting high-quality research with urban and peri-urban woody and non-woody vegetation and its use, planning, design, establishment and management as its main topics. Urban Forestry and Urban Greening concentrates on all tree-dominated (as joint together in the urban forest) as well as other green resources in and around urban areas, such as woodlands, public and private urban parks and gardens, urban nature areas, street tree and square plantations, botanical gardens and cemeteries.
The journal welcomes fundamental and applied research papers, as well as review papers and short communications. Contributions should focus on one or more of the following aspects:
- Form and functions of urban forests and other vegetation, including aspects of urban ecology.
- Policy-making, planning and design related to urban forests and other vegetation.
- Selection and establishment of tree resources and other vegetation for urban environments.
- Management of urban forests and other vegetation.
Special attention will be given to interdisciplinary research as developed under the approaches of, for example, urban forestry, arboriculture, urban greening, urban ecology, urban health, urban agriculture, urban horticulture, urban silviculture, and community forestry.
The papers should be written in a style that is understandable to specialists from other disciplines as well as interested policy-makers and higher-level practitioners.
