Report conveys state of Austin’s trees

Monday, March 2, 2020 by Tai Moses

If you’d like to check out the state of Austin’s urban forest, the city’s Community Tree Report should be your first destination. A comprehensive and nicely packaged review of tree stewardship activities, the report includes an overview of tree planting efforts by the city as well as local nonprofit and community partners, a map of projects, lists of funding investments and sources, observations by staff on the data in the report, and a vision of where the city hopes its urban forest to be in 2034. The report begins with a letter from city urban forester Emily King, in which she says, “I am grateful to live in a city which not only recognizes the intrinsic value of the urban forest ecosystem but also passionately cultivates it.” So when you finish perusing the report, you know what to do: Get out and plant a tree, for the future.
