Charlotte needs an updated tree ordinance to increase protections for trees & green space not decrease protections. Evidence is everywhere you go in Charlotte…. clear cutting of lots. Loss of green space and mature healthy trees is rampant! We must halt this now and reconsider what we are doing. City Council will be voting on a new “urban” tree ordinance petition 2019-104. We are asking them to vote NO. This will be a loosening in the protection of our trees in Charlotte as a part of the new UDO (unified development ordinance) to streamline for developers.
