The Indiana Urban Forest Council, established in 1991, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the public awareness of protecting, expanding and improving Indiana's urban forests. The Council serves as a resource and liaison concerning urban forestry issues within the state and nation.
Trees provide services like filtering pollution, slowing stormwater runoff, increasing property value, and shading buildings in the summer. Learn more by watching the video.
