In Waveland, Mississippi, another Gulf Coast city hard hit by Hurricane Katrina, citizens passed a similar ordinance protecting live oaks and magnolia trees "... to maintain air quality, defend ecological integrity, and preserve beauty and tranquility..." According to the ordinance's program statement, the purpose is to "create a direct link between the recognized trees and the human or cultural community. . . as a means of encouraging the protection of these important trees... by using ancient, historic and unique trees as examples, we can stimulate a greater understanding of trees and their importance to the community and perhaps encourage an informed public to plant trees for future generations to enjoy."
