Trees are an important part of our neighborhood, so much so that they are recognized in our Neighborhood Plan. Our streets and avenues are lined with trees that create a peaceful, aesthetically-pleasing environment. Trees increase our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into our community. We gather under the cool shade they provide during outdoor activities with family and friends, and they provide welcome shade when we walk our dogs and exercise outdoors.
