The article discusses a survey questionnaire that was designed to assess the extent that tree management in New Zealand is planned, systematic, and integrated and to pinpoint key challenges and limitations local authorities confront in managing the urban forest. Results reveal that a number of local authority tree management programs were operating under difficult conditions and within severe financial constraints. A dearth of basic information about the urban forest remains an obstacle.
