Urban Forestry

Division Overview:

The Urban Forestry Division is responsible for the planting and maintenance of all trees within the street right-of-way, in village parks, and all other village owned properties.

Trees located in the Village's right-of-way are property of the Village and permission is required before residents, prune, remove or otherwise perform any maintenance.

If you would like to request Village forestry services for a public tree in your area or have questions regarding our urban forestry program please use the Citizen Request Form or contact the Village at (920) 468-5225.

Benefits of Trees

Properly cared for trees are valuable growing assets worth three times the investment. Visit the International Society of Arboriculture website to learn more about the value of trees.
