I'm signing because urban trees need saving. We eed these and all mature trees not posing a threat to remain in the city for the health of the earth. Let's keep Asheville green and keep our air clean, while giving citizens and birds a healthy habitat to enjoy. We know what we have: don't make it gone.

Trees need to be respected. Old growth trees are rare, special and deserve to be preserved.

As someone who moved to Asheville for the local biodiversity, and to become an Arborist, I've been keenly aware of just how poorly developments have been treating our local forest resources. No matter how many trees the developer says they will plant, they can not compare to the current carbon dioxide absorbation of a mature stand of trees. Nor can they absorb the same amount of runoff, provide the same amount of shade, off gas as much oxygen, or filter as many soil pollutants. Not for at least 75 to 100 years. We need current developers to be driven less by greed, and more by a desire to see their projects incorporate and flow with what is already a more important resource to the city than their project. We need them to have a long term view of what, and how, they can benefit the working class humans who actuay get their projects done. And we need to ask these basic requirements of all developers because if they can't come up with an answer, then they need to move aside and let the twenty humans standing behind them itching to answer these calls have a chance. We do not need to except any proposals from those will not consider the environment, or the city's, or the local communities needs. Patience is a virtue and we honestly don't need to be to very patient when it come to development, because the second a bad proposal is shut down, there will be more. And we need to let those who consider the good of Asheville to be of higher priority than increasing their profit margin by another 10% pave the way now.
