Cleveland Tree Coalition - Reforesting the Forest City

ECO SPEAKS CLE

May 2 2023 • 45 mins

In honor of Arbor Day, we discuss local efforts to reforest the Forest City with the Cleveland Tree Coalition and the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission. Cleveland was once known as the Forest City, but it's not so forested anymore, with less than 18% of tree canopy remaining in the urban core. This tree canopy loss negatively impacts the city and its residents. Two women working to understand those impacts and rebuild our urban forest are Samira alone with the Cleveland Tree Coalition and Alison Ball with the County Planning Commission. Join us for a conversation about the power of trees for community quality of life and how strategic urban planning, planting, and tree stewardship are restoring our taking root in our region for this and future generations.

Guests:
Samira Malone: Inaugural Director, Cleveland Tree Coalition
Alison Ball, Planning Initiatives Specialist, Cuyahoga County Planning Commission
