City of Boston Environment & Sustainability Committee

I’m not just active in Somerville’s climate change efforts. Today, I met with the Chair of the City of Boston’s Chair of Environment & Sustainability Committee, alongside one of my Climate Reality Project collaborators. We wanted to hear straight from the source particularly about efforts to improve Boston’s tree canopy, in response to the Boston Globe’s reporting on the underwhelming results against former Mayor Menino’s pledge to plant 100,000 trees by 2020. (They’ve planted on net something like 5,000 trees.) And we came with possible solutions, including bringing some important partners to the table. The City’s new mayoral administration is starting over, planning a new tree census, rather than pushing forward against a seven-year old target that never had a plan behind it.
