About the FRAME Program



The FRAME program is a long-term study of small forests in cities and suburbs.

As of 2019 there are 50 FRAME sites in PA, DE, and NC.  Our current work includes experimental and observational studies of soil and key species to understand interactions between plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates. Other research is focused on monitoring, manipulations aimed directly at site improvement, and technology transfer for better management of urban forest fragments. The structure of the FRAME encourages studies by other researchers: a number of these are already in place and are listed here.
