Tree Pittsburgh Announces Public Meetings for the Urban Forest Master Plan

As part of Tree Pittsburgh’s Urban Forest Master Planning process, the public is invited to give their input about the City’s trees at meetings beginning January 23rd.  Participants who come to the public meetings will learn the details of the state of Pittsburgh's urban forest, and will have the opportunity to provide detailed input into the plan.  All meetings are free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.  The meetings will be informative and interactive. 
From 5:30 - 7:30 p.m., a meeting will take place at the Union Project, at 801 N. Negley Avenue
Additionally, Tree Pittsburgh is collecting Pittsburgh’s Tree Stories -- specifically opinions about City trees, their maintenance, and funding for the urban forest with a short online survey at  Residents are encouraged to share the survey with their neighbors, co-workers, and friends as Tree Pittsburgh gathers more data about the city’s opinion about trees.
