New book explores urban forests and green space

CITY member L. Anders Sandberg has released a new book co-edited with PhD students from York's Faculty of Environmental Studies as well as from the University of Toronto. The new book titled Urban Forests, Trees, and Greenspace: A Political Ecology Perspective explores urban forests, trees, and green space with a political ecology lens. From the editor:

Urban forests, trees and greenspace are critical in contemporary planning and development of the city. Their study is not only a question of the growth and conservation of green spaces, but also has social, cultural and psychological dimensions. This book brings a perspective of political ecology to the complexities of urban trees and forests through three themes: human agency in urban forests and greenspace; arboreal and greenspace agency in the urban landscape; and actions and interventions in the urban forest.
