Challenges of Municipal Arboriculture    (View PDF)

Carl Jorgensen

Abstract: Municipal arboriculture encompasses four principal objectives: 1) quality tree planting programs as growth of a city occurs, 2) preservation of existing trees, 3) maintenance of trees on the public right-of-way and city properties, and 4) education of the general public as to the value of trees. Varying approaches to these four objectives and the means of carrying them out are presented. Effective implementation of the objectives depends on a workable tree ordinance.
