Los Banos, California

Los Banos’ Urban Forest Vision
Our City’s trees, forests, and other natural resources are recognized as integral to sustaining life and health for all City residents. A healthy, thriving, and sustainable urban forest is a community priority, to be thoughtfully managed and cared for by partnerships between the City and its residents to maximize public safety and benefits that include a thriving ecosystem, vibrant economy, and livable communities shared by all who live, work, and play in Los Banos.

Los Banos Urban Forest Management Plan Mission
The City of Los Banos, in partnership with the community and urban forestry consultants, completed this Urban Forest Management Plan in 2022. This plan is a guide to maintain, protect, and enhance Los Banos’ extensive tree canopy cover resource and the multitude of associated benefits. The Urban Forest Management Plan extends beyond maintenance and operational guidance to include a variety of long-term goals, strategies, and priorities to achieve optimal levels of urban forest management, sustainability, and equity in a comprehensive and systematic manner. Achieving the goals set forth in this plan requires a shared commitment and partnership between the City and its community to sustain a thriving urban forest providing benefits to Los Banos’ environment, economy, and well-being for future generations.
