Tree Protection Ordinance

The City is rewriting the Atlanta Tree Ordinance, which will not be revised again for another decade.



Tell council:
“I support the Citizens Blended Draft.”

The Citizens Group is a coalition of Atlanta architects, builders, arborists, conservationists, and members of the Tree Conservation Commission. The coalition has spent months working with the City and other professionals to create the “Citizens Blended Draft” which fixes major problems with the Planning Department’s Tree Ordinance draft and retains the parts that are working. It closes loopholes, addresses equity, and simplifies the ordinance with solutions that will protect our urban tree canopy and benefit Atlanta citizens as well as builders. It includes effective enforcement measures and is fair and balanced – including innovative ways to protect trees while our city grows.

We have prepared a comparison chart that clearly outlines how the Citizens Blended Draft differs from the City Planning Department’s latest draft. Check it out!
