Community Forestry

Holden Forests & Gardens envisions a Northeast Ohio where trees, forests and gardens provide maximum ecological and social benefits to the region’s people and communities. To help achieve this vision, Holden Forests & Gardens employs a full-time community forester and an arbortist educator, who serve as resources for the community. Woodlot owners should also check out our Woodlot Management Resources Page.
