The proposed Tree Ordinance published by City Planning on January 21, 2021 has some positive changes, but unfortunately, reads more like a Tree Removal Ordinance.  It focuses on prioritizing which trees can be taken down and how to reduce paying recompense fees, which are collected to pay for tree replanting.  Unlike our current ordinance, there are no measurable goals to preserve or enhance the tree canopy.
