About Community Forestry & Sustainable Landscapes

Even if you live in a town or city, you are surrounded by forests. Look around and you will see parks and open spaces filled with trees that work to make your environment a cleaner, healthier place to live. It is the mission of the Nebraska Forest Service to provide and support a viable community forestry program in Nebraska. The Community Forestry & Sustainable Landscapes Program provides assistance to Nebraska communities and citizens with the intent of maintaining and enhancing the community forest resource across the state.
