More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. The dense population in cities is leading to unsustainable exploitation of natural resources like air, soil, water, and wildlife. Even though there are numerous scattered papers regarding urban forestry, their contribution to the sustainability of natural resources is less explored. This paper aims to coordinate various research fields in urban forestry through a literature review. The study indicates that the trend in publication on urban forestry shows a sharp increase in recent years. It further reveals that urban forestry is an innovative way to conserve urban natural resources for future generations, and they provide various direct and indirect benefits and ecosystem services.
