Join Mark in testifying for stronger tree protections
If enacted, the Act would significantly strengthen existing tree protection laws across the District.
However, the Act could be even stronger. Casey Trees is proposing:
- Lowering the minimum size of Special Trees, now at 55 inches, to 40 inches.
- Close the tree maintenance loophole to prevent Tree Fund money being spent on tree removal
- Specifying that Tree Fund money may be used to plant trees on both public and private lands
