Trees Damaged by Storms
The City of Des Moines Department of Public Works Forestry Division will assess damage to trees caused by severe weather/storms as soon as it is safe to do so during the storm recovery process.
Public Works and Forestry Staff will then weigh the amount of damage 48-hours after the storm to determine if the Metro Waste Authority Compost Center at 1601 Harriett St. will open for residents to drop off storm debris.
