Tree & Shade Master Plan Community Meeting

Join us for the evening at the Yuma Art Center to learn more about Yuma’s trees and the Tree & Shade Master Plan the City is starting to develop.  We want to hear your ideas about how we can make our community a better place.  This event is open to everyone!  If you live, work, or play in Yuma, you are a stakeholder.  Light refreshments will be provided. 

The trees throughout the City of Yuma are its “urban forest”.  An urban forest includes all the trees in the parks, along streets, and on private property throughout the city.  The City is developing the Tree & Shade Master Plan to establish goals and actions necessary to ensure future generations continue to enjoy the benefits of a healthy urban forest in Yuma. 

Visit the website ( to find out more about Yuma’s urban forest, take a survey, and get involved in the planning process.
