Welcome to IUFC's Website
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.

IUFC Announcement   
The Indiana Urban Forest Council would like to thank all of our members and supporters over the last 26 years. We so appreciate and value all of you who have supported our mission to expand and improve our urban forests.

Unfortunately, as we continue to face increasing challenges and reductions in the municipal arborcare industry, we find that our agency is no longer able to function effectively. Therefore, after much deliberation on input from our Executive Director, our Board Advisory Committee, and our membership, the IUFC Board of Directors has unanimously approved a decision to dissolve IUFC as of October 31st, 2016.

There will be a webinar to discuss the grant application. Here are the details, October 28.
