Abstract:
The main objectives of the Urban Forests In Europe study is to provide an indicative, comparative insight in urban forest policy-making in Europe, as an overview of European urban forest policy-making seems to have been absent till now. Providing more insight into the various policy objectives and instruments used as well as into their consequences can assist when developing urban forest policies for a specific urban area, region or country. Insight in the policy-making process and the problems and conflicts that arise between groups of stakeholders during this process, as well as the ways in which these problems and conflicts are dealt with in various European cities and countries is believed to help policy-makers to anticipate similar situations in the future. Apart from the above mentioned 'societal' objectives, the following scientific objectives for the study have been formulated: 1. To develop a concept of urban forestry, focusing on the main differences with forestry at large; to demonstrate the relevance of such a distinction.; 2. To give an overview and analysis of differences and similarities - and their underlying factors - in the development and importance of urban forests in selected European cities and countries.; 3. To provide insight in urban forest policies and the way in which these are formulated, decided upon and implemented in selected European countries, especially locally, and in the context of the regional and national level.
