This week, Angie, Lacey, and Aubrey drove the area we are looking at for an urban forestry project.  What we found was that there were a bunch of areas that were very built up and had a lot of trees in every available space and then a lot of empty lots.  We will be doing further drives to take a closer look at potential locations and will be researching the ownership of the various properties we are looking at. The Climate Change team will be having a meeting about Urban Forestry on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, at 6:30 pm, location TBD.  At this meeting we will be discussing the research that has been done so far for an urban forestry project and discuss options and brainstorm ideas for an urban forestry project in Tempe.  Please let me know if you are planning to attend the meeting or if you would like to help out on research.
