Community Survey #1

Fremont, CA Urban Forest Management Plan

Survey Closed - See Results Below

The following survey results were compiled from the first survey to gather an understanding of community values and preferences around trees and to improve the City’s community outreach and engagement efforts. The results of this brief survey will help guide the development of the City’s Urban Forest Management Plan. This survey considered your perception of trees on public property—think street right-of-way and parks—as well as private trees—trees on yours and your neighbor’s property. This was the first of three planned surveys, with the focus of gathering community input on “what we have” as well as determining current tree care roles, responsibilities, needs, and desires.
