To kick-off our Tree City USA application, the newly formed Tree Citizen Advisory Panel held a commemorative Arbor Day tree planting at Lake Pine.
We look forward to seeing this oak grow into a mature tree that will provide natural beauty and shade for those who visit Lake Pine.
The Tree Citizen Advisory Panel (TreeCAP) is a group of appointed citizens who represent the voice of the citizen as it relates to tree programs, management and regulations. They provide guidance and feedback to the Environmental Committee (Tree Board), meeting Tree City USA standards, and help plan and guide Arbor Day and other tree planting events.
There are 5 members, appointed for 1-year terms. Appointments may be renewed up to six (6) consecutive years. All members must reside within either the Apex Town Limits or the Apex ETJ.
There are no officers in the panel. Membership is comprised of:
(1) tree/shrub expert or arborist (by trade or education)
(1) landscape / flora expert (by trade or education)
(1) developer / builder (any use type)
(2) generally interested citizens
TreeCAP shall meet when invited to the Environmental Committee, acting in their capacity as the Tree Board.
