Urban forestry

Igor Lacan is a University of California Cooperative Extension Advisor for the San Francisco Bay Area, specializing in urban forestry.

His program of applied research and extension provides technical and policy tools to advance sustainable environmental management. Focusing on urban trees and urban water, I develop research projects on emerging issues in urban landscapes. I produce extension and outreach materials that transfer findings from the University of California and other academic sources to the practitioners, and I serve as a technical resource for landscape professionals, planners and architects, local governments, Cooperative Extension colleagues and other academics, and tree-focused non-governmental organizations.
