SUBJECT:

Title

Commission District(s): All Commission Districts

DeKalb County No Net Loss of Trees Policy

Body

 

Information Contact: John. W. Manson IV

Phone Number: 4043716207

 

PURPOSE:

The purpose of the policy is to ensure that there will be a no net loss of trees on DeKalb County
property. Trees provide an abundance of ecosystem services that are vital to human and
environmental health. Trees aid in reducing flooding and erosion, filtering runoff, and protecting the
watersheds that provide clean drinking water, recreational activities, and wildlife habitats.

 

NEED/IMPACT:

Trees are particularly important in regulating our local climate. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and aid

in cleaning our air and reducing pollution. Trees reduce the urban heat island effect caused by

pavement, buildings, and other impervious surfaces. Trees provide shade and cooling, which

lessens energy demands and pollution. Shade can reduce the surface temperature by 20 - 45

degrees Fahrenheit compared with/to unshaded areas.
