We need a Stronger Tree Ordinance in DeKalb County

DeKalb County Commissioners

We know that weather patterns are going to become more severe with climate change. We will need to be prepared for more intense rain episodes, more heat, and need to protect our lungs from pollution. We need a strong tree ordinance to protect our trees, particularly mature trees that benefit us the most.

We know that trees are going to be part of our climate change mitigation strategy. Please protect our citizens by enacting a much stronger tree ordinance similar to the one recently adopted by the City of Decatur.
