Some residents in Greensboro are eagerly awaiting the details of a proposed tree ordinance. A city council subcommittee finished the draft for the ordinance this week, but it has not yet been made public.
The new measure comes in response to a dispute between property owners and Duke Energy over the company’s practice of cutting trees. Nancy Vaughan is an at-large City Council member who helped write the ordinance draft.
"We were able to protect private property as well as public right of way," says Vaughan.
