Talk to others about taking action through your networks—including Facebook, Nextdoor, neighborhood listservs, etc.—and direct them to our petition and this website.
Urge your local elected officials to reach out to the state legislators who represent your community with the message not to vote for any bills that will pre-empt local tree ordinances.
Send a short message to your local paper. Tell them that state lawmakers should oppose efforts to pre-empt local tree ordinances. Usually, these are 150 words or less and it’s best to make one clear point.
Talk to people and groups you are aware of and get them involved by sharing this website, offer to be or find a speaker. Unusual allies are best! Do you know a developer, realtor or businessperson who appreciates and supports tree ordinances and the ability of local governments to protect trees? Is there a Garden Club in your community that might be interested?
