Why We Care About This Coalition

American Forests is proud to be a member of the Sustainable Urban Forests Coalition (SUFC), the nation’s only network of nonprofits, businesses, associations, foundations and other partners working to advance sound urban forest policy and practices.

SUFC believes that urban forests are essential to improving air and water quality, advancing human health and safety, and promoting economic development and social equity. Its mission is to convene and mobilize support for thriving communities through healthy urban and community forests.

American Forests works with other SUFC members to advocate for sound policies that ensure our nation’s urban forests live into their full potential to transform America’s communities, prioritizing areas where Tree Equity is needed most.
