The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is advocating for several bills designed to save trees and encourage the planting of more trees. According to CBF, five of six bills have been killed as of January 26. The one surviving bill is HB 494, introduced by Delegate Keith Hodges. You can read it here. The House of Delegates approved it on a 98 to 0 vote on January 25.
Auduboners should urge their state senators to support tree preservation bills.
