City in the Forest, CITF, is a coalition of Metro Atlanta residents advocating for better tree protection. We work together to raise awareness for improved tree protection ordinances and more balanced building practices. As our city grows, CITF is focused on a better way forward that serves all interests including the preservation of our unique urban forest.
ATLANTA IS DIFFERENT
No other major U.S. city has the unique urban forest Atlanta has. At nearly 47% tree canopy, Atlanta is known as the City in the Forest. We plan to keep it that way.
