Making Your Community Forest-Friendly

This worksheet was designed to help communities review and revise their development regulations, so that future projects conserve and protect valuable trees and woodlands and encourage new plantings. A set of questions are provided to help local officials determine whether local codes require, allow, or prohibit “forest-friendly”development practices to ensure that tree cover protection is maximized without compromising other goals, such as public safety, visibility, access, and economic value.
