Benicia Tree Program

Main Info
Summary: 

In 2008, after a multi-year public process, the City of Benicia started its new tree program with the adoption of an updated tree ordinance. The goals of the program include completing an inventory of City trees, increased tree planting, adoption of a modern tree management plan that specifies proper maintenance practices, public education, public/private partnerships, and the development of a tree master plan. The program also dovetails with the City's 2009 Climate Action Plan, which supports the tree program and further calls for planting of trees that are drought tolerant and have excellent carbon sequestration characteristics.
