Urban forestry

What will be our future reality? More people in urban environments? Or will people start escaping urban gettos and speculative prices to join smaller communities in rural environments? In both cases local forestry is key. These documents on YouTube explain why urban forestry is do important and people do already in this field…

From Sustainocracy point of view the urban development with trees is indeed a great step forward. It is a pitty though that we have been destroying nature so much that we need to recover it in the weirdest environments, trying to play God. We seem to want to “plan” these urban ecosystems while having to deal with the numerous surprises that nature holds for us in the process. In our own environment we already saw fallen trees (safety hazzards) due to storms, massive insect pests around apartment buildings, plants dying on vertical buildings, etc. The obvious benefits of plants are huge but they bring other challenges.

We encourage citizen’s engagement in their own environment, espcially developing living green in their gardens, local streets and neighborhoods. In larger parks and spaces we develop food forests where we allow plants, insects and animals to interact in an as natural way as possible. The living green acts as social integrator, food supply, healthy air, learning environment and form of positive energy.
