Urban Forestry Assessment (WisUFA) ProgramWisconsin Urban Landowner Survey

Over 70% of Wisconsin’s residents live in urban areas, which cover 2.56 million acres of land and contain an estimated 42.8 million trees. To better understand how urban residents think about and manage their urban trees and green space, Wisconsin is collaborating with the USDA Forest Service to pilot an urban form of the long-running National Woodland Owner Survey [exit DNR] (NWOS).

The Wisconsin Urban Landowner Survey will be sent in January 2017 by the University of Wisconsin Survey Center [exit DNR] (UWSC) to 6,000 urban residential property owners living in four Wisconsin metro areas: Milwaukee, Madison, Wausau and Green Bay. In addition to testing the national survey, the Wisconsin survey will provide valuable insights for Wisconsin’s urban communities. Urban forestry programs will be able to use insights from the survey to better understand the perspectives and needs of urban residents concerning management of their trees and green space.

The survey is being paired with the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program pilot in Wisconsin, which is sampling urban forest plots throughout the state to collect information on the condition of Wisconsin’s urban forests and the benefits and services they provide.

Future survey results and complimentary resources and recommendations will be shared here as they become available.
