Lilly Lombard Makes Updated Presentation on Trees to City Council/Board of Public Works Conference Committee

Lilly Lombard made a presentation on the value and importance of urban trees to Northampton’s City Council/Board of Public Works Conference Committee on June 23 (meeting agenda). Here is a YouTube video of the meeting recorded by Ruth McGrath (see the first 46 minutes for the presentation and discussion about trees), followed by a PDF of the presentation. This is an updated version of the presentation Ms. Lombard made to Northampton’s Energy and Sustainability Commission on June 12.

At the June 23 meeting, City Engineer James Laurila asserted that a lack of staff time at the Department of Public Works is as big a constraint on getting trees planted as a scarcity of funds.
