Urban forestry deals with the implementation of programmes which help in the increase of green spaces on the earth and educating the population on the same. Urban forests are a mix of native tree species that existed prior to the development of the city and exotic species that were introduced by residents or other means. An increased tree diversity can minimize the overall impact or destruction by a species-specific insect or disease, but the increase in the number of exotic plants can also pose a risk to native plants if some of the exotic species are invasive plants that can potentially out-compete and displace native species.
