Back to the drawing board for proposed Dallas tree ordinance - provisions cited as vague, complicated, and lacking protection; Dallas, TX

Monday's public hearing on changes to Dallas's tree ordinance -- Article X of the Dallas City Code, to be specific -- was quiet, cordial, and borderline erudite. Every commenter seemed as well-informed as he or she was passionate, and the breadth of experience -- from two former city council members to a certified landscape architect and representatives from several neighborhood and building associations -- almost eclipsed the fact that there were only eight people who actually commented during the two-hour meeting in a basement auditorium of City Hall.
