Tree Ordinances


Tree Ordinances On Charlotte Talks, we've had several conversations about the health of our tree canopy and ways to preserve it. That preservation is done through a web of legislation, with each city in Mecklenburg County protecting its green space through tree ordinances. We'll learn about those tree ordinances and whether they provide a bulwark against a rising tide of development. Guests Doug Shoemaker - Research Analyst, Center for Applied Geographic Information Science, UNC Charlotte Lauren Blackburn - Davidson Town Planner Laura Brewer - Senior Urban Forestry Specialist, Certified Arborist, City of Charlotte Contact the show: 704-926-9323, 800-603-9323, charlottetalks@wfae.org or Charlotte Blogs.
