“He looked away from the buildings and out over the ocean of trees. Since Atlanta was not a port city and was, in fact, far inland, the trees stretched on in every direction. They were Atlanta’s greatest natural resource, those trees were. People loved to live beneath them.”

Atlanta is internationally recognized as an innovative leader in urban livability with deeps roots in the economic engine of real estate development. With current world-renowned projects like the Beltline, our city’s urban neighborhoods have a vital role to play in the Atlanta of the future which is now in the planning stages.
At the heart of this city is Atlanta’s Tree Canopy – a symbol of Atlanta as much as the Eiffel Tower is a symbol of Paris.
Atlanta truly is a City In the Forest. Let’s work to keep it that way.
