Urban Forestry is responsible for the management, planting, replacement, and maintenance of the over 11,000 public trees within the City. This includes working with Public Works & Maintenance to administer EAB treatment, prune, and plant new trees.
Please note that the City cannot assist with trees that are located on privately-owned property. Unless the tree becomes a public nuisance, as defined within Sec. 74-19 of the municipal code, a certified arborist should be contacted if you have concerns.
