We appreciate your input!
Between May 30 and June 29, 2022, more than 1,200 people visited the Burlington’s Urban Forest Master Plan project page on Get Involved Burlington. Through the engagement tools posted to the project page, Burlington residents identified 50 locations where they either particularly value or otherwise want to improve the urban forest. In addition, 465 people responded to the public survey. Through your responses, we have learned that most would like to live on a street with regularly spaced, large trees. This is despite few respondents currently living on such a street. In addition, more than 80% of respondents want canopy cover to increase in Burlington and would be willing to pay at least a little more in taxes to support those efforts.
The State of the Urban Forest report provides you with more information about the current state of Burlington’s urban forest. Our project team will prepare an engagement summary and use it to inform the drafting of Burlington’s Urban Forest Master Plan. Stay tuned for more opportunities to provide input on the draft Master Plan in the winter of 2022/2023! We will also offer opportunities to provide input on the City’s Woodlot Management Strategy this coming fall.
Thank you for your contribution!
