This is your brain…
In 1975, under the leadership of Charlottesville Parks and Recreation director, Gene German,
George Briggs and Clare Byrd developed “Guidelines For A Street Tree Planting Master Program
For Charlottesville Virginia”.
WHICH STREETS ARE IMPORTANT TO THE MASTERPLAN?
The study chose to look first at the public sector of town. In order to determine which streets
would be the most important ones to include in the planting masterplan in the sense that they are
heavily used, and serve to connect vital parts of the town together.
All points of entry into the City are noted since thy are heavily traveled and are also
important in terms of the first impressions which they give.If these streets were well-planted
with canopy trees, there would also be more shade, and less noise, glare, dust and
pollution for people to have to deal with everyday.
