Arboriculture & Urban Forestry

Arboriculture & Urban Forestry (AUF) is the International Society of Arboriculture’s bimonthly, peer-reviewed journal. This scholarly publication serves as ISA’s main outlet for disseminating new and original research findings centered on the care and management of trees in urban environments. Originally titled the Journal of Arboriculture, AUF has been regularly published since 1975. Its long tenure demonstrates ISA’s commitment to fostering a greater appreciation for trees and promoting the research, technology, and practice of professional arboriculture.
