Pittsburgh, PA (July 21, 2010)- It is the declared policy of the City of Pittsburgh and the purposes of the Pittsburgh Shade Tree Commission to preserve and maintain as many trees within the city as possible by reducing tree loss during development, providing for replacement of trees lost during construction, and maintaining the health of trees in our parks, right of ways and urban areas.
The Shade Tree Commission is a non-profit organization, commissioned by the Mayor’s office with the task of restoring and maintaining the city’s tree population. Trees in the city provide beauty and utility. The Shade Tree Commission recognizes the value and believes that Pittsburgh’s urban trees are one of our city’s greatest assets. The Shade Tree Commission hopes to make the City of Pittsburgh a greener place to live and work.
