It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Urban Forestry & Urban Greening
Welcome to CITY BRANCHINGS
Our aim is to develop, maintain and manage urban forests and urban green spaces adequately to provide landscapes for human wellbeing against the background of increasing urbanisation all over the world. We want to find suitable compromises between urban development, nature protection and human needs for health and recreation in a natural environment. We work closely with all stakeholders involved to ensure good communication, cooperation and mutual understanding.
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.
