Abstract

This project explores the public perception of urban forestry in Worcester, Massachusetts. The team employed the use of four data collection methods including a content analysis, questionnaires, focus groups, and Q-methodology to gather a broad collection of economic, environmental, social, and health-related benefits associated with urban trees. This study focused on the Greendale and Burncoat neighborhoods of Worcester, Massachusetts that were infested and eventually deforested as a result of the Asian Longhorn Beetle.
