The Virginia Department of Forestry (DOF) and the Green Infrastructure Center Inc. (GIC) have partnered with the City of Harrisonburg in order to evaluate the City’s urban tree canopy and determine how to best incorporate urban forests into the City’s stormwater management programs (i.e. Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) and related stormwater management goals and ordinances). This project is ongoing and more updates will be available throughout the process.
