By Dawn Treglown • on June 23, 2009

Connie Head, consulting forester with Technical Forestry Services in Commerce, on Tuesday gave Floyd County Commissioners an update on a city project of developing a professional Community Tree Management Master Plan.
The three phases of the project include assessment of existing conditions; strategic planning and development of a vision and goals; and development of the plan.
The project is currently in the third and final phase.
The Rome/Floyd County Comprehensive Plan supports community tree management, and the city currently has five certified arborists on its staff.
In 2008, the ratio of tree planting to tree removals was 1:2.4, compared to 1:1 in previous years.
