Green Infrastructure Plans

The South Carolina Forestry Commission (SCFC) and the nonprofit Green Infrastructure Center, Inc. (GIC) collaborated with state, regional, and local governments, and federal and state agencies to create a strategic green infrastructure network and plan for South Carolina. Green Infrastructure (GI) includes all the interconnected natural systems in a landscape such as intact forests, wetlands, bays, dune systems, rivers, and agricultural soils that provide clean water, air quality, wildlife habitat, and food. Planning to conserve or restore GI ensures that communities can be vibrant, healthful, and resilient. Having clean air and water, nature-based recreation, scenic viewsheds, abundant local food and sustainable working lands requires that environmental assets are included as part of community planning.

    (2022-06-30) Green Infrastructure Center, Inc.; South Carolina State Commission of Forestry; Firehock, Karen; Lee, Matthew; Sheppard, Stuart; Lewis, Tim
    This guide is written for planners, landscape architects, urban foresters and arborists, elected officials, community tree advocates or anyone who wants to make the case for robust urban canopies, funding forest expansion and implementing strategic tree-planting campaigns. This guide shows how to craft a compelling argument for the urban forest. It also details the data needed to both set a canopy goal and create realistic, proven strategies for engaging both the public and private sector in growing and sustaining the urban forest. Case studies and examples are provided throughout this guide to show that these ideas really do work.
