dc.description.abstractTo many people in New Zealand the term 'urban forestry' has appeared ambiguous and even contradictory. A variety of meanings have been applied to this concept by different interested parties. To foresters, urban forestry is a specialised branch of traditional forestry, to horticulturalists and aboriculturalists a systematic tree planting and care program. Although landscape architects have presently had little input in urban forestry programs their role is a key one in this emerging field of urban planning. Skilled in planning and design methods, using ecological, social and visual resources as a base, the landscape architect is best able to provide overall direction for urban forestry. The concept of urban forestry must therefore be seen to embrace all the many professional and public bodies interested in planning the total urban environment for the benefit of the populace. This concept removes the focus from a single tree or woodlot to the systematic planning and management of all trees and forests within and surrounding the urban environment. It is in response to the recent developments and interest shown in the field of urban forestry in New Zealand that this major study has been undertaken.en
