The Urban Forestry Advisory Board, formerly known as the Tree and Landscape Advisory Committee, was created by Ordinance 5426 on August 2, 2011. The Tree and Landscape Advisory Committee was originally created by Ordinance 3699 on April 20, 1993 and amended on June 16, 1998 by Ordinance 4099 which redefined the composition, powers, and duties of the committee.

The purpose and intent of the Board is to advise the City Council on urban forestry and arboricultural related issues as an integral part of the City's green infrastructure and to sit as the Wildland-Urban Interface: Firewise Advisory Board to advise the City Council on wildland and urban development related issues as an integral part of the City's fire protection program and green infrastructure.

  • One representative of the land development community
  • One representative of the tree service community
  • One representative from the University of Arkansas with knowledge of urban forestry or arboriculture practices
