Joyce Mover 781-438-0803 or 781-462-5043 DCR program helps communities grow urban forests By Barbara Taormina The city and the Canopy M alden’s tree advocates received some support and advice this week from Julie Coop, coordinator of the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Urban and Community Forestry program. Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley, chairman of the City Council’s Community Forestry Program Advisory Committee, arranged the presentation to learn more about what type of help the state off ers with urban forestry programs. Coop explained how her program works, and the different resources and grants available to communities looking for help managing their trees. “Our aim is to assist communities and nonprofi t groups in protecting, growing and managing community trees and forest ecosystems,” Coop told committee members. She added that the program’s goal is to improve the environment and enhance the livability of communities throughout the state. Collective, a citizens’ advocacy group, have teamed up and applied for a DCR grant to conduct an inventory of the city’s street trees. “The application is still being reviewed, but we should find out if we’ll receive it within the next month,” said O’Malley, adding that the inventory the city started years ago is incomplete and out of date. Coop said the forestry program provides training and technical assistance to cities and towns. “We will respond to what a community is wanting,” said Coop, adding that the standard workshops focus on tree inventories, proper planting methods, tree identifi cation and i-Tree, software that lets a community assess its community trees. Malden is also a candidate for the Greening the Gateway Cities program, which was developed to help cut household energy use for heating and cooling. The program, which plants trees predominately on private property, targets neighborhoods with older houses surrounded by a lower tree canopy and subject to high wind speeds. Tree plantings are concentrated in Environmental Justice neighborhoods to benefi t residents most in need. According to the research behind the program, trees can signifi cantly cut summertime cooling costs by providing shade. Trees can also reduce winter energy costs by interfering with wind patterns that cause heat loss by air fi ltration in homes with inadequate insulation. The Greening the Gateway Cities program staff estimate that a 1 percent increase in the tree canopy, above a minimum 10 percent canopy, reduces the energy need for cooling by nearly two percent while energy needed for heating is cut by just over 1 percent. So far, the Greening the Gateway Cities program has planted roughly 19,000 trees, mostly in the front and side yards of private homes.
