Hello, I'm working with my local city government on a project that aims to increase urban canopy on residential properties. We intend to create and distribute surveys and hold a focus group in the first phase to identify hurdles in getting individuals to plant and maintain trees on their property. Does anyone have advice regarding focus group questions to get conversation started? We really want to get a good, open dialogue going with people who do not tend to plant trees. Also, any advice about what type of incentives to use would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
