Tree Canopy[Top]

The Tree Canopy Committee focuses on measures to protect the Tree Canopy in Bannockburn in order to preserve our neighborhood’s character as well as the environment. The first effort, led by Geert Van Brandt, works to persuade owners and builders to share their landscaping plans and adopt best practices to preserve our tree canopy when homes in our neighborhood are constructed or renovated. Because existing laws leave much to be desired, the second effort, led by Bill Eichbaum and Sebastian Gordon, seeks to persuade the County to strengthen laws and regulations to preserve the tree canopy in neighborhoods like ours. Please contact the above Committee members if you have suggestions or wish to be involved.

Also view the Protecting Our Trees page for more information.
