Does Your Tree Equity Score Make a Difference? A Multi-City Panel Discussion.

What is a “tree equity score” and how does it affect us? A nationwide database known as the Tree Equity Score was released by the American Forests in 2021 to fanfare among tree advocates, urban planners, and environmentalists. Yet, do we really understand what the data say? If we do, what can we do with the information? What should be our priorities and why? This multi-city virtual panel discussion will be moderated by Trees Atlanta’s Co-Executive Director, Greg Levine. The panel includes experts from:  Trees for Houston, Trees for Seattle, City of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and Trees Pittsburgh, as well as one of the creators of the Tree Equity Score from American Forests.
