Obstructions from trees around airports can hinder aircraft operations, requiring the airport to manage tree growth, both on and even off airport property.
ACRP Research Report 259: Methods to Manage Tree Growth Near Airports, from TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program, identifies the mitigation strategies to address immediate needs, and longterm planning.
