Urban Forestry 


The Urban Forestry Program is lead by a board of volunteers. The board advises the city council on matters pertaining to the promotion, improvement and protection of the urban forest. The board's mission is to provide wise stewardship and leadership to ensure that we protect our existing trees and encourage proper selection, planting methods, and maintenance of our new trees so that we continually enhance the quality of life in our city.

The board pledges to increase community understanding of the value of our urban forest and to take responsibility for the education and publicity of those values. This is done through a variety of educational initiatives in cooperation with local elementary schools, the Boys' and Girls' Club and other groups throughout the city.
