A group of friends explores an urban forest with a U.S. Forest Service ranger, in this media gallery from PLUM LANDING. They see how the network of trees and other green spaces creates a forest in the city, providing a habitat for birds, squirrels, and other forms of wildlife. They also learn how forests are like cities for animals, where many things live on trees, from the top of the canopy to the roots in the ground. They even find things living in the dead trees on the forest floor!
