I’ve heard Charlotte has one of the best tree ordinances in the country. Why is TreesCharlotte even necessary?

The most recent revision of the tree ordinance goes a long way toward protecting a percentage of trees when new neighborhoods or commercial facilities are constructed, while still encouraging economic growth. The ordinance will help save 10-15% tree coverage in some areas, and requires more trees in parking lots. The ordinance is an important part of a multi-strategy solution to meet the canopy goal.
