Abstract
This review of the literature details the current extent of knowledge of the physical, mental, social, and economic benefits of the urban forest, the negative health impacts that can result in areas that are underserved by urban forests, and explores implications for planning, especially with regard to social justice issues that relate to the extent and location of the urban forest in cities across the country. It draws several conclusions for planners to be aware of to inform their work within the urban and community forestry realm.
