Background
A comprehensive literature review was performed in support of the American Public Works Association’s project, Urban Forest Management and Public Works: Improving Communication and Building Capacity. The purpose of the literature review was to determine the type, extent, and content of research and information that is readily available regarding urban forest management in the municipal public works context. The findings of the literature review are a resource for the project steering committee to use to determine the key components of a successful urban forestry program. The findings of the literature review also identify where there is a lack of accessible and relevant information on the subject.

Sources Reviewed
A variety of literature sources were researched and reviewed; those included professional journals, professional trade magazines, popular publications, on-line publications, and organizational websites. Over 20 sources were reviewed. The specific sources of literature and information and the number of documents found related to the project’s topic of urban management within a public works context are presented in Table 1. Source
