Increasing the Neighborhood Tree Canopy

Foster-Powell is considered a “low canopy / low-income” neighborhood,” which—somewhere in the city ranks—makes us a desirable landing point for more trees.  And as such, the city may be willing to help us meet our arboreal dreams.

TreesThat is, if you have arboreal dreams.

If you do, and you want to be part of a team surveying the neighborhood for gaps and potential improvements in our neighborhood tree system, come to the Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association Meeting tonight.

Or don’t.  You can always have Friends of Trees plant something in your sidewalk strip and call it good.  That helps, too.

But if you want more involvement, tonight’s meeting is at 6:30 at Bar Carlo.
