Be Tree Smart | Exploring Tree Regulations

IMG_2397.JPG

Did you know Trees:

  • Increase property values by up to 20%?

  • Reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 30%?

  • Clean the air and promote health, reducing instances of childhood asthma?

  • Reduce stress and promote outdoor activity?

  • Help keep our rivers clean and pollutant free?

Austin loves trees

Austin was the first city in Texas to pass a comprehensive tree protection ordinance. Recognizing that trees provide many benefits, this ordinance doesn’t only regulate tree protection during construction, it regulates the impact homeowners & renters can have on trees. Many common home improvement projects could require a tree permit.

Do you know how to help the trees around your home stay healthy and keep their value while avoiding facing large fines and violations? Join Austin City Arborist Inspectors Daniel Priest and Doug Dear for discussion, food, and refreshments and learn how you can become Tree Smart.
