Will you attend the February Tree Ordinance Meeting?

February Tree Ordinance Meeting

East Hillians are passionate about trees especially our oaks. If you wanna get folks riled up cut one down. It’s been our experience that a lot of us are passionate about trees and that most of us know very little about the ordinance that controls what can and can’t be done when it comes to the trees on our property.

To aide our understanding of the Tree Ordinance–we will have all the experts at the February EHNA quarterly meeting. Scheduled to be there are a person from City Parks. The person that wrote our current tree ordinance and two Arborists. Gulf Power Co. tree trimming supervisor will be present to respond to your questions about their work.

The meeting’s purpose is to learn about the current ordinance not debate it. Bring your questions and let us know if you will attend so that we have enough space. Depending on attendance, the location could move. Stay tuned here and to our website for updates. (
