The following publications are available from the Arbor Day Foundation.

  • Urban & Community Forestry–A Practical Guide to Sustainability by James R. Fazio

    A comprehensive guide to action in any community where trees are valued–or should be. Emphasis is on working in partnership with others both internally on a tree board and externally with people ranging from politicians to under-represented populations.

  • How to Work with Volunteers–Effectively by James R. Fazio

    This is Tree City USA Bulletin No. 36. Other bulletins also provide helpful information. The entire set of bulletins, in 3-ring binders, makes a great reference library for tree boards.
