On Facebook, Larry Cornett has publicized an event that deserves the participation of everyone who believes in the preservation of our commonly held assets, such as mature trees.
And while I’m at it, here is an intelligent article for your delectation and delight about the effect of trees on market values in a neighborhood: http://www.naturewithin.info/Policy/Hedonics_Citations.pdf
Please come join the tree dialogue in Brooklyn Centre this weekend. This is an issue that affects not only our neighborhood but all of our urban areas.
- Saturday, September 28, 2013
- 1:00pm until 4:00pm
- W.C. Reed Park 1700 Denison Avenue
- Please come! We need your help!
US EPA coordinator James Justice has scheduled a walk through the park with ODNR Urban Forester Alan Siewert.
1. Mr. Justice thinks because we didn’t focus on the trees at the Public Meeting therefore, they are not an issue….
2. Mr. Siewert is a FORESTER not an arborist. He sees trees from a timber perspective not an environmental and ecological perspective.
3. Mr. Siewert has identified 8 trees worthy of saving of the 61 trees in the park.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! We need people there who have an environmental and ecological perspective as well as people who understand the value of urban trees to the beauty of a neighborhood. If you can, please come Saturday. If you can’t please give us arguments and reasons WHY existing trees and soil are good remediators for PAHS toxins and should NOT be removed from the park.
