    This is a much duly needed film. Thanks.

    Many will agree that Americas’ urban forests and the individual trees within it are in trouble and under threat- but its not just from invasive alien insect species. In many parts of the country and in cities like the City of New York where individual healthy and robust street trees provide a significant service, on a daily basis those trees are allowed to be exposed to a another largely unnoticed, silent tree killer. The tree killer is totally anthropogenic in its making.

    Builders and developers under permits from the municipality are unleashed against thousands of urban tree assets that affront their properties and have been given a green light to have their way with public street trees. Absent the trained municipal foresters (or their representatives), arboricultural leadership, a close collaboration with other city agencies, and the will to implement effective state-of-the-art tree preservation strategies when it is needed (with the proper oversight) sees countless communities experiencing the equivalent of a logging operation. Tree abuse is the silent killer because a community is totally unaware of the transgressions that have occurred against the urban street tree(s) during the last new building construction project. The outcome of tree abuse occurs one tree at a time that is only noticed by the urban forester years later when the tree is in decline.

    Then the loggers come. And the decades of anticipated tree benefits, services, amenities and beautification for which those trees were initially planted are eliminated for good.

    We have planted thousands of trees on our property over the last 35 years. You need to see if you could get this in the schools ( maybe in the science dept. 8th grade) The kids need to be aware of whats happening to our trees, they could do fund raisers and have fun taking days off just to plant trees! Thank you for the show it was great.
