1997 Timelines: TreePeople History

TreePeople holds a charrette – a cross-disciplinary workshop  – bringing together 75 of the nation’s most talented and forward-thinking landscape and building architects, engineers, hydrologists, urban foresters, government officials and community leaders to work in an intensive, fully-integrated process to create a collection of designs to retrofit residential, public, commercial and industrial properties to function as urban forest micro-watersheds and  show how regional policy objectives may be achieved more efficiently through building and retrofitting sites for improved environmental function.
