The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Preserving Our Shade Trees: Minnesota's Experience

The Minnesota Shade Tree Program, administered through the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, provides expertise and matching grants to participating cities for quick removal of diseased trees from public and private property, as well as matching grants for replanting on public property. However, more than 360 cities have not participated in the program, and success in individual participating cities varies greatly. This article reports on the results of a survey research study to answer various questions about the program, including public support for preserving trees, city attitudes toward the program, ways the program can be made more effective, and lessons and best practices from participating cities.
