This study analyzes the research on the repercussions of inadequate tree ordinances in three metropolitan areas of North Carolina: Asheville, Charlotte and Raleigh. Along with the analysis of specific tree ordinances from each city, this paper utilizes the research on the sustainability and management of urban forestry in Asheville, North Carolina. Data have also been compiled from articles in the Asheville Citizen-Times, the Charlotte Observer and the Raleigh News & Observer. Urban forestry has a significant impact on the overall health of the planet as well as its citizens. This paper seeks to determine the most effective communication tactic for inciting action in residents within these urban communities, conceivably resulting in the creation of additional, more productive tree ordinances to preserve the urban environment
