Canopies of Green Urban Density
Produced by Brady Lawrence and Martha Baskin
Dense housing policies and strong urban tree protections can co-exist. But only if policy makers recognize the import roles mature trees play to public health and climate mitigation, and enact construction codes that include protecting mature trees during residential construction. The video, “Canopies of Green Urban Density” showcases voices of an architect, bioregional planner and urban homeowner who understand that trees are essential to healthy, climate resilient communities. Originally produced in late 2022, the issue remains critical, as Seattle city leaders punt in passing a strong tree protection ordinance and state legislators consider legislation that would undermine such an ordinance were it passed.
