WEBINAR: Competing Legal Interests in Street Trees

Lunch and Learn Opportunity - Competing Legal Interests in Street Trees

July 10, 2024

12:00PM-1:00PM EST

Street trees are ubiquitous in urban areas. Municipalities often – but not always – assume control over the trees growing along public rights-of-way. But what degree of ownership and control do property owners and municipalities each have over the trees? This talk presents a sampling of several cases that illustrate some of the conflicts that arise between landowners, municipalities, and third parties with respect to three key property rights: the right to use, the right to sell, and the right to destroy.

Join us for the informative webinar!

Speaker James Komen, Class One Arboriculture, is a consulting arborist in California specializing in risk assessment and tree appraisal. He helps clients make informed management decisions for individual trees and for tree inventories. His work has been published in Arboriculture & Urban Forestry, Arboricultural Consultant, Palms, Ontario Arborist, and Western Arborist.
