Preserving Our Natural Habitat
The City of San Antonio continuously strives to set standards that serve to improve the overall health and well-being of its residents. Along with overseeing the development and improvement of land, it is the responsibility of the Development Services Department, under the guidelines of the Landscaping and Tree Preservation Ordinance, to maintain, preserve and add to the existing tree population. The goals of the Landscaping and Tree Preservation Ordinance are to enhance the aesthetic environment, to provide health benefits to our community, and to continue to provide elements essential to establish and maintain a strong ecosystem. In order to assist with meeting these goals, the City provides incentives to encourage the maximum preservation of trees.
