Citizen Tree Commission

Guiding the greenery to our streets and neighborhoods is a key responsibility of the Citizen Tree Commission. We work with local utilities and others to stake appropriate planting areas for residents. We also provide a list of recommended trees and clearance distances for the planting site.
