The mission of the Arkansas Urban Forestry Council is to enhance quality of life by promoting the benefits of trees and development of sustainable, community forests through education, outreach and partnerships.
The Arkansas Urban Forestry Council has a rich history of working with individual communities to promote sound urban forestry practices. The Urban and Community Assistance Program was authorized by the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978 (PL 95-313), Section 9, and amended by the 1990 Farm Bill (PL 101-624). The Council was organized under this act and it became a nonprofit organization in 1994. The Council’s goals encompass forestry issues related to urbanization within small communities as well as urbanized areas. The AUFC Board of Directors consists of 13 elected members with the ex-officio appointed by the state forester.
Support staff includes an executive director.
