Tree and vegetation management in the urban and urban-interface communities create issues of growing importance in an increasingly urbanized state such as California.

They support these areas with tax dollars, local government agency involvement (usually Parks and Recreation or Public Works departments), and with efforts in many cases by both individuals and volunteer organizations in management and planning.
