Keeping Atlanta as ‘The City in the Forest’
By Greg Levine, Co- Executive Director & Chief Program Officer, Trees Atlanta

As visitors fly into our city, they are amazed at the forest beneath them.  While local citizens may take less notice of the greenery until they move away, many new residents coming from the Midwest or West Coast have a mild fascination and even a love of their new city’s tree cover.  A friend from Oklahoma often reminds me that after watching “Gone with the Wind” as a child, he was determined to move to Atlanta for the charming accents and the giant oak and pine trees.
