The giving tree (3)

There's hope

After neighborhood residents (and concerned citizens from across the City) expressed shock and dismay about recent tree fellings downtown (see the previous posts here and here), the Mayor’s office has promised a new process will be implemented for tree removal. Until the process is in place, in the interim no tree can be cut down within the City limits without prior approval of the deputy directors of both the Horticulture and Streets and Sanitation Departments. This is certainly a step in the right direction for more transparency and accountability when it comes to chopping down trees.

For anyone who is interested, the public is invited to attend the next meeting of the Birmingham Planning Commission, Wednesday December 1 at 8:30 AM in City Council Chambers, City Hall. This should be a chance to make your voice heard on this issue.
