Street Trees Are New York's Newest Accessory

A new zoning requirement passed by the New York City Planning Commission will require all new developments to plant trees along the street.

"I think that I shall never see a zoning text amendment lovely as a tree. But the new Section 26-41 of the Zoning Resolution, which was approved on Monday by the City Planning Commission, no doubt comes close for fans of a green city. It requires the planting of street trees for new developments, as well as major enlargements and certain conversions of existing buildings. One tree is required for every 25 feet of street frontage."
