Strategic Urban Forest Management Plan Public Workshop - April 29 ...By Jan Andrea Hall
WE NEED ACTION NOW!
1. We need an interim protective tree by-law now and a permanent by-law as a first priority of the Urban Forest Management Plan.
2. We need comprehensive standards for tree preservation in the city that protect existing trees, and maximize the growth and lifespan potential for all trees.
3. We need an independent urban forestry department, headed by a certified forester and supported by a public advisory committee.
4. We need an inventory of the trees in Guelph so we can evaluate the success of maintaining the health, diversity and canopy of the urban forest.
