Urban Forestry



Hawk Ridge Oak

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.
