Urban Forestry Management Plan

UFMP

The City of Buena Park has been working with West Coast Arborists, Inc., to develop a Master Tree Planting Plan and an Urban Forestry Management Plan.  These plans are intended to manage the future growth of one of the City's most valued assets; trees.

The Urban Forestry Management Plan (UFMP) has a number of goals, including:

  • Provide a planting/replanting "master plan" for new development and redevelopment.
  • Protect the inherent property values of homeowners and businesses.
  • Promote the elegance and urbanity of the City's trees.
  • Clarify and establish approved street tree species by geographical sectors in the City.
  • Reduce maintenance costs in the long run by providing like trees in a similar area.
  • Provide trees more adaptable to soil conditions within the City.
  • Provide a formalized guide to City staff and developers on approved tree species and the plan check process.

Although the UFMP does provide a set of guidelines, it may be necessary at times deviate from them depending on unique conditions.
