Tree Guidelines for Coastal Southern California Communities
CivicWell (formerly the Local Government Commission) and the Western Center for Urban Forest Research and Education (USDA Forest Service) have teamed up to produce the Tree Guidelines for Coastal Southern California Communities. The comprehensive guidebook includes chapters on identifying the benefits and costs of urban forests and tree planting programs as well as general guidelines for siting and selecting both residential and street trees.
Its exhaustive tables list specific trees that are appropriate for coastal Southern California communities. The guide also features helpful advice on designing and implementing tree programs and provides resources for technical assistance and funding opportunities.
