Tree Canopy (TC) Commission
Much of the tree canopy loss in recent years is due to development projects on private land. One of the TC’s most important current efforts is to increase the planting and protection of city trees during development. It sent a detailed set of recommendations to C’ville Plans Together. The TC welcomes ideas from the public. They may be submitted via the TC's website.
