“Streets and their sidewalks, the main public places of the city, are its most vital organs.” The Death and Life of Great American Cities Jane Jacobs

“Once there was a tree…and she loved a little boy.” Shel Silverstein.
In 1975 Charlottesville developed a street tree plan.
It was never implemented.
The way we get many of our street trees is making developers plant them,
when the development requires a site plan.
But when the required tree dies, does anyone replace it?
