Summary

Urban forests are often overlooked as they are “hidden in plain sight.” Urban forests and the services they provide can be vague concepts. This article gives a definition of urban forests, detailing their functional and structural values. Terminology associated with both terms and determining valuation of the benefits is provided. Quantitative information on these benefits helps land-use planners, local governments, and decision-makers see the contributions often overlooked in urban forests and can help plan on where to continue to plant trees within a complex urban environment.
