Abstract: This management plan is a municipal document that outlines the community’s vision and prioritized goals to protect and grow the City’s tree cover or “community forest.” In this context, the “community forest” is within municipal boundaries and includes publicly managed trees along streets and in parks, as well as privately managed trees on private properties. Integrating data from a variety of local, state, and national government sources as well as private research organizations with several stakeholder meetings and on the ground assessments, this plan presents an in-depth existing conditions assessment of the condition of Camden’s community forest as well as a series of goals which have been prioritized by local residents and organizations. The plan is intended to be proactive, and outlines the work that these varied partners want to accomplish to improve their forest cover.
