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.

The Indiana Urban
Forest Council would like to thank all of our members and supporters over the
last 26 years. We so appreciate and value all of you who have supported our
mission to expand and improve our urban forests.
Unfortunately, as we continue to face increasing challenges and reductions in
the municipal arborcare industry, we find that our agency is no longer able to
function effectively. Therefore, after much deliberation on input from our
Executive Director, our Board Advisory Committee, and our membership, the IUFC
Board of Directors has unanimously approved a decision to dissolve IUFC as of
October 31st, 2016.
The Urban Natural Resources Institute is hosting monthly webinars for i-Tree. Each one will focus on a different aspect of the i-Tree Suite.
