Director of Urban Forestry, City of Boston
Todd Mistor has come to the City of Boston Parks and Recreation Department to serve as the first Director of Urban Forestry. Todd is originally from Michigan where he has many years of urban forestry experience working for the City of Detroit and other smaller municipalities. He has studied forestry as well as philosophy and theology, which help to bring a well-rounded perspective to the work laid out in Boston’s Urban Forest Plan. He is also a Certified Arborist with a municipal specialization through the International Society of Arboriculture.
