Is Lexington doing enough to protect its tree canopy?
This video shared by the Lexington Climate Action Network outlines concerns for tree canopy loss. What are your reactions – are there approaches we should be pursuing to better protect our trees?
This year’s Town Meeting will be considering one way of strengthening our protections – changing the period of time before a major construction project during which trees in setback areas are protected. The proposal is to increase this time from 1 year to 3 years. What are your thoughts?
