The Sustainable Madison Committee’s Tree Working Group presented their final recommendations at the Sustainable Madison Committees 4/17/17 meeting. The full committee unanimously accepted the recommendations for further action in beginning to implement them. Among the recommendations is to develop and adopt an Urban Forestry Master Plan. The Tree Working Group suggested the creation of an inter-department Urban Forestry Master Plan workgroup to develop this Master Plan. One critical element of a master plan would include a city-wide canopy coverage goal.
