Mirror Pond

Mirror Pond in Bend.

The Bend City Council will branch out from its regular topics of discussion Wednesday as councilors are set to consider existing and potential tree policies. The fear is that if the policies are left unchecked, valuable trees will be lost.

Concern for Bend’s trees has been budding for years as the city’s population boom caused a dire need for housing and commercial development, which in turn, resulted in treating the preservation of trees and native vegetation as mostly an afterthought.

In an article ostensibly about reviewing and revising existing rules about removing trees, wouldn’t it be helpful to actually describe those rules?
