Next video? How to select a tree for: next to buildings, under lines, etc. Do we have a list of recommended trees for different areas and applications?
Steve Cothrel
38:43
Forestry has a list of recommended trees sorted by mature size class. It does not go into detail on specific site qualities.
Jean Pitman
42:02
I am interested and concerned about preservation of our mature trees. How is a tree defined as being “hazardous”? Is there a way that this process of cutting down older trees can be slowed and/or reviewed?
Steve Cothrel
42:02
I am very impressed with the progress the City has made to date. With the City Forester position vacant, I was not expecting so much to be happening already. Excellent work team!

Public Utilities posts signs at water main breaks, when maintenance is pending. perhaps that is a model the City can replicate
Jean Pitman
51:22
Agreed Paul- its not reinventing any wheel
Jean Pitman
52:37
Austin, TX has a permit request for any tree over 19 inches around.
MDavid

Great ideas, Mr. Wilkos!!
Susan Moore

Thank you, Michael Wilkos! All that!
Jean Pitman
53:21
Even our neighbors in Bexley have good systems in place
MDavid
56:30
Could Mr. Wilkos share that letter/list of ideas that the University District has written up?
Debra Knapke
57:52
Is it possible to have a pdf of the presentation? I am not able to write fast enough :)
Michael Wilkos (he/him)
01:00:37
Just added the UAC letter with 4 suggestions/requests in the chat. Thank you for requesting in MDavid.

on data collection: curious if technology has advanced (LIDAR ?) in ways that the canopy and tree types can be identified...which may not be as granular as arborists on the ground, but would fill data gaps “well enough” to direct limited resources to maximize the canopy development
MDavid
01:01:39
Thanks!!
Rosalie Hendon
01:02:15
We will follow up with a PDF of the slides after the meeting! Thanks!

Keep in mind your time is theoretically city/municipal $$… your entities will likely have different opinions on this. As a federal employee I imagine the feds don't want 'obligate' themselves for any efforts for fear of legal reprisal.
Cathy Cowan Becker
01:59:16
We do need any coalition to be representative of the communities it represents
Jean Pitman
01:59:37
great point Claus
Claus Eckert
02:00:26
Thanks for the update Rachel.
Michael Wilkos (he/him)
02:01:51
Jean's example of organizing residents in Weinland Park included a diversity of residents at both an in person meeting as well as creating an online format for engagement. Often the burden of responsibility falls on community groups to make sure they include those voices - it takes time and effort and a more systemic equitable engagement tool would welcome.
Claus Eckert
02:02:06
Offer to area commissioners in N and S Linden and Hilltop: we would like to talk to you about our tree nurseries for tree giveaways in 2022
Jean Pitman
02:02:28
I need to go to another meeting but I am definitely interested and would even go so far as to say I will set up a meeting? Any thoughts about time of day/day of the week preferences?
