The paper unfolds the use of urban forestry in controlling climate change and presents the use Geographical Information System (GIS) as an adequate and efficient modern tool for analyzing and mapping the forest inventories for use in ameliorating the scourge of climate change in the society. The paper concludes that a holistic approach which involves the integrating urban forestry, GIS and elements of climate will go a long way to assist in saving the livelihood of mankind from being seriously affected by climate change. More so, adequate awareness should be given on the roles of urban forestry and GIS in reducing climate change. In addition, continual assessment of landuse and land cover should be done in order to detect the percentage change of urban forest resources over time with the use of GIS and remote sensing.
