Welcome to the Canadian Urban Forest Research Group


The Canadian Urban Forest Research Group (CUFRG) is a loose network of urban-forest scholars and practitioners interested in undertaking and disseminating scholarly work about urban forests. The group formed as a consequence of a research program on urban-forest values, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and based at the School for Resource and Environmental Studies, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. A member of CUFRG is anyone who wants to profile his or her scholarship on the site. If you want to participate, contact one of the members of the core group at Dalhousie: James Steenberg (james.steenberg@dal.ca), post-doctoral fellow; David Foster (david.foster@dal.ca), research associate, or Peter Duinker (peter.duinker@dal.ca), professor.
