This year’s 4rd Annual Greenprint Summit will expand on last year’s Summit of the critical need to integrate the urban forest into urban planning, given the impact of the urban forest and built environment on urban health. 200 attendees are expected, including municipal planners, health professionals, elected officials, urban forest managers, and community activists.
The Tree Foundation’s mission is to build healthy, livable communities in the Sacramento region by growing the best regional urban forest in the nation. Over the last decade there has been an explosion in new research and pilot projects involving the impact of the built environment on public health. The Tree Foundation has collaborated on several such projects and many more are happening around the region and in other parts of the country.
