tree canopy

"There is an update in the tthe surveys preliminary assessment
“There is an update in the tree canopy survey currently going on, it started about six weeks ago. The survey’s preliminary assessment indicates that there has been a loss of about 1.4% of the City’s canopy trees compared to the last survey done six years ago in 2009. The study should be completed by the end of this year and hopefully there will be an analysis of where the trees have been lost.” 11/10/15 Commissioner Jody Lahendro

Meanwhile, the draft capital budget for Charlottesville shows $25,000 a year for urban tree planting. Not enough to secure shade for pedestrians along the 156 miles of streets in our City. This time of year is a great time to plant trees. Call Miss Utility, plant a tree next to the road in front of where you live. It is not hard to do.
