Description

City tree managers are like investment executives whose task it is to optimize their community’s return on investment from their urban forests. But, which best management practices, habits, and innovative approaches actually contribute to the bottom line of a city’s tree budget? Do large cities and small cities have to think and act differently when it comes to proactively versus reactively managing their city trees? Are there small changes in work habits, tree selection, or tree codes that can add up to significant tree care cost savings? And, if a city is optimizing its approach to tree management, what is the best way to let the town’s decision makers knowr
