Strategies for Protecting Trees in Cities
Some of the most effective ways to preserve trees in an urban area include education, having a tree ordinance and incentivizing developers to work around existing trees and preserve the tree canopy. Developing a partnership with the developer is also important.
On this bonus clip of Building Roots by TreeNewal, host Wes Rivers sits down with newly elected Councilman Ron Schmidt from the town of Argyle to talk about tree education and sustainability in the community.
Ron shares the importance of cities developing a partnership with developers rather than opposing development can guide development while preserving trees as well.
