The Forestry Unit manages boulevard and park tree planting, tree pruning, tree removal, stump removal, and tree diseases & pests.
Forestry's vision is to be stewards of the community forest by utilizing best management practices, by implementing innovative design solutions, and by increasing community awareness and engagement in order to preserve and enhance the quality and function of the community forest.
Important information for homeowners regarding the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), the City's management plan, and actions for your tree that should be taken into consideration can be found on the EAB page below.
