NB staffer Jennifer Brundage spends her mornings working with Southie Trees and Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) to advocate for the preservation of trees throughout South Boston. Jen helps the youth workers at ABCD to compare architectural drawings with trees present, taking scientific measurements and entering them into a database.
Jen has produced an up-to-date inventory of all trees in the Old Colony housing community, which is now being redeveloped. Advocates will use this tree inventory to educate the community and the Boston Housing Authority about the importance of preserving them.
