The Authority has recently revised its Tree Inspection and Maintenance Policy template. This template establishes guidelines to reduce public agency exposure to liability associated with trees. Additionally, it contains guidelines for protecting trees and maintaining their public benefit, including improved air quality, reduced storm water flow, habitat for wildlife, and a reduced heat island effect. The revised Tree Inspection and Maintenance policy template is available electronically via the Authority’s website and is accessible in Microsoft Word format, so that members can make agency-specific modifications, if necessary.
For questions regarding this policy template, Authority members can contact their assigned Risk Manager.
