The Indiana Urban Forest Council, established in 1991, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the public awareness of protecting, expanding and improving Indiana's urban forests. The Council serves as a resource and liaison concerning urban forestry issues within the state and nation.
Trees provide services like filtering pollution, slowing stormwater runoff, increasing property value, and shading buildings in the summer. Learn more by watching the video.
Mini-Grants enable ACTrees members to host a more successful event, rather than be the determining factor in whether an event is organized. Click here for more information.
Every year, Indiana Urban Forest Council pays tribute to the
people and organizations in our state that have gone above and beyond to
improve the urban forest in their community. If you know someone who deserves a
little R & R (Recognition & Respect), let us know! Nominations are due by September 9th. More information is on our Programs tab
The IUFC's new office address is:
PO Box 30663
Indianapolis, IN 46230
