How To Write a Municipal Tree Ordinance.
Fazio, James R., Ed.
Tree City USA Bulletin, n9 Jan 1990
At the heart of the Tree City USA program are four basic requirements: The community must have the following: (1) a tree board or department; (2) an annual community forestry program with financial provisions for trees and tree care; (3) an annual Arbor Day proclamation and observance; and (4) a tree ordinance. Sections of a model tree ordinance are presented, explained, and illustrated with actual examples. Also discussed is the book upon which the model ordinance is based, "Municipal Tree Ordinance Manual," based on work by Philip J. Hoefer. Additional sources of information about trees and conservation are described on the back cover of the bulletin. (MCO)
