The Northeast Pennsylvania Urban and Community Forestry Program   (NEPA UCFP) enhances the quality of community life by improving the health of trees, forests, and green space throughout the region.

Since 1995, the program has supported more than 200 projects in communities throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. These projects have brought diverse organizations together in a shared effort to support the long-term care and management of trees and natural resources in their communities.

Partnership building fostered through NEPA UCFP has helped to raise community awareness and participation in tree planting, tree care, stewardship, and educational activities throughout a thirteen-county region that encompasses three watersheds and supports more than a million residents. The program seeks to improve the ecological health of the region and to restore damaged ecosystems, to support economic improvements through natural resource planning, and to create pleasant places to live and work through sustainable community forestry programs.

Projects funded through the NEPA UCFP have involved more than 2,450 partners in planting, tree risk assessment, and restoration projects on degraded mine lands and parks, along highways, trails and river corridors, in downtown districts, neighborhoods, schools and at tourist attractions.

The program is sponsored through the USDA Forest Service, Northeastern Area, State and Private Forestry, and the Urban and Community Forestry Program. It is directed by the Pennsylvania Urban and Community Forestry Council in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Forestry and the Penn State Cooperative Extension.
