New tree law a good starting point; Seattle, WA; 2/22/09

New tree law just a start Seattle Post Intelligencer - USA
The Seattle City Council expects to vote Monday on a new tree ordinance, but acknowledges the new law does not go far enough to protect city trees.
"It's a step in the right direction," said council President Richard Conlin. The "interim tree grove ordinance," or Council Bill 116404, strengthens protections against development for stands of trees -- 20 or more contiguous trees; trees with trunks more than 6 inches in diameter; and those deemed "exceptional."
