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.
We (almost) DID IT!!
Tree plantings and programs that help the public understand urban trees need financial support. IUFC delivers this support and we promise to double your donations in real dollars and real results!
Please donate before December 10th to help us meet our goals for the year. We raised $8,000 and we need $7,000 more to complete our Challenge grant goals. With your help, we anticipate a lot of growth in 2016!
