Trees Across Durham (TAD), a City-County-Community collaboration, would appreciate your help in completing 5-minute online survey on neighborhood trees. The survey seeks Durham residents' opinions on urban trees and the value they place on having trees in their neighborhood. Results from this survey will be used to better inform TAD's resources with the needs of the community. The survey is available in both English and Spanish at the link below. Thank you and we appreciate your help in advance!
