Answers to Questions asked at City Council Meeting (June 1, 2021): 

 

 How many trees were estimated by staff to be saved by adding this new position?

Staff did not calculate the impact of the Tree Protection ordinance and it would be nearly impossible to do so. There is no baseline data on the amount of tree-cutting in the City annually. Even a labor-intensive review of past Planning Board site plans would yield a poor picture because only recently has the City begun to require tree info on such plans. It also would not include anything outside of the purview of the Planning Dept, such as items that receive Code Enforcement approval. Over the past four months, the Planning Director indicates his office has been able to successfully protect “many trees” in the site review process under existing regulations but this ordinance would make that process much more clear and objective.

 How many trees per year has the City planted?

According to Parks & Rec Director Karl Coughlin, over the past five years, the City has planted 262 trees, not including the Beach Plums and Pitch Pines recently planted at the Willard Beach entrance. This also does not include the hundreds of Black Walnut, Norway Spruce, and White Spruce bare root seedlings that we handed out during Arbor Week 2020 in conjunction with the Maine Forest Service.
