Forestry

ForestryMission
Our mission is to maintain a healthy urban forest by providing expert maintenance for the trees owned by the City or found in the right-of-way. We also offer support to residents and community members who would like to help us grow and maintain our urban canopy.

Responsibilities
The Forestry division is responsible for trees on public property or in the City's right-of-way.  Right-of-way includes the paved portion of a street and a "border area" between the pavement and the adjoining property.  The trees Forestry maintains are located in the "border area", which is also typically occupied with utilities, fire hydrants, street signs, sidewalks, etc.
