Starting the Landmark Tree Program

In an effort to increase the number of trees in Los Angeles, Blumenfield believes the City need to be more aggressive in protecting existing trees. Recently the City Council passed Blumenfield's measure directing public works staff to develop a Landmark Trees Program that will designate and protect trees identified as Landmark trees. This motion also directed public works staff to partner with with environmentalists and community groups to develop ways to strengthen and expand the applicability of our protected tree ordinance.
