Residents can learn about the city’s tree ordinance at the first “Brookhaven 101” workshop set for March 16 from 9 a.m. to noon on the 3rdfloor at City Hall, 4362 Peachtree Road.

“The workshop series is designed to educate the community on various city functions and we thought the best place to start was with our tree ordinance,” said Community Development Director Ben Song in a press release.  “Brookhaven is often defined by its beautiful, mature trees, and our tree ordinance and associated landscaping requirements play an important role in preserving that tree canopy.”

The workshop will explain how the ordinance assures the right level of tree preservation and a case study will be presented to share various facets associated with development and its relationship to the tree ordinance.

RSVP for the March 16 ‘Brookhaven 101’ workshop at kelly.reynolds@brookhavenga.gov or 404-637-0500.
