Urban forestry : the harmonization between North America and Europe Guo, Edward

Abstract

Urban forestry is practiced both in North America and Europe, but is viewed in different ways. North America is a highly urbanized continent, which allows them to have a greater number of researchers focused in on an idea of urban forestry. Europe on the other hand is a continent with a great number of different countries and cultures each focused on their own ideas. Even though they are both practicing the same thing, the methods and reasoning behind it are very different. For urban forestry to grow in North America, it will require innovation from younger students beginning in urban forestry programs at universities. For Europe, it will require the countries to have a minimum number of research assignments and projects in urban forestry. By comparing the two sides, it can be seen that each continent can learn from the other and by harmonizing the two it can create the greatest growth.
