TreeVitalize Program Survey
Our partners at PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources are disseminating an online to survey assess the status of community shade tree programs across the Commonwealth. We are asking those who most directly oversee their municipal shade tree program to please complete the survey. These people would generally by the City Arborist, if there is one, or the chairman of the Shade Tree Commission/Committee, if active. Otherwise, it would be the employee responsible for street trees, such as the Public Works Director, Park Manager, or Street Superintendent.
The purpose of the survey is to gain a better understanding of how shade trees are managed in the state, and to verify information the state is required to report to the USDA Forest Service, which provides funding for the TreeVitalize program.
