Neighborhood Street Trees
Please submit this survey by OCTOBER 15, 2018

How do our individual views add up?

Thank you for participating our street tree survey.

Your response will help us develop a community-supported plan for Eastmoreland’s several thousand street trees. The Tree Committee is working on a long-range plan that reflects the values and opinions of our Eastmoreland neighbors, as well as city policy that values the critical role street trees play in maintaining a healthy urban forest. 

Please fill the survey out to the best of your knowledge (without research). All opinions and feedback are welcome. Each adult living within the Eastmoreland neighborhood is welcome to participate. At the end of the survey, you may indicate how many surveys have been returned from your household.

Thank you for your participation!
Eastmoreland Tree Committee Survey crafters: Matt McGraw, Carlotta Richard, and Catherine Mushel.
