Urban Forestry Services
Urban Forestry is the systematic management and care of all naturally occurring and planted trees, as well as associated plants that exist where we live, work, and play. Purposeful and planned management of urban trees within our cities and towns help to maximize the multiple environmental and social benefits trees provide.
Urban Forestry Services Include:
- A partial or full collection of tree inventory data including tree location, tree species type, tree size, condition, and management needs.
Tree Risk Assessments
- Evaluation of the level of risk an individual tree or multiple trees on a property or site represent to people or property. Candidates for risk assessment are often identified during a tree inventory but no existing inventory is required.
Municipal Tree Management
- Local municipal governments play an important role in providing the overall environmental and social benefits urban trees provide.
