City Trees Sustainability Guidelines & Best Practices

Category: Energy Efficiency

Description
Include the use of trees for storm water management, energy efficiency, and air quality. Trees are part of a communities infrastructure and are considered a capital asset - one that increases with value over time.

Watershed management through the use of trees is an effective tool and trees for energy efficiency is another excellent tool that is often overlooked.

Please consider incorporating trees into your standards if they have not been considered. In addition to the environmental benefits, trees provide social and economic benefits that make livable, sustainable, communities.

The City Trees Sustainability Guidelines & Best Practices provides practical guidelines for effectively incorporating and maintaing trees within integrated stormwater BMPs to capitalize on their benefits.
