The Chastain Park Conservancy Meets Atlanta's Tree Ordinance with New Powers Ferry PATH Featured

We are happy to share this information with you from Pete Pellegrini of the PATH Foundation in regards to the new Powers Ferry PATH: "The Design team has successfully minimized the construction impact placed on the existing trees that front the new PATH," said Pellegrini. "A total of one tree will be removed by the proposed construction with the park receiving a total of ten new three-inch caliper trees as well as a safer trail venue for those visiting the park. The CPC has created a win/win for all project stakeholders that will meet the Atlanta Tree Ordinance and create another generation of trees for all park visitors to enjoy for the next 70 years."

"As a Conservancy, we take great care in protecting the existing tree canopy and ensuring we plant new trees that are appropriate to the area," said Rosa McHugh, Executive Director of the Chastain Park Conservancy.
