Abstract

The urban forest provides a community numerous benefits. The urban forest is composed of a mix of native and non-native species introduced by people managing this forest and by residents. Because they usually contain non-native species, many urban forests often have greater species diversity than forests in the surrounding natural landscapes. This fact sheet overviews the composition and structure of the urban forest found in Gainesville, Florida.
