Tree Preservation Board
Please note: As of February 1, 2013, the Tree Preservation Board will only hold meetings on an as-needed basis. A two-week notice will be provided when a meeting is required.
The board’s objective is recognizing that trees benefit the city by decreasing urban noise and air pollution, conserving energy and soil, minimizing flooding, providing food and cover for beneficial urban wildlife, and providing value and stability to business and residential neighborhoods, and recognizing that most species of trees require at least two decades of growth to begin to exhibit such beneficial qualities, it is the intent of this division to establish regulations to encourage the proliferation and preservation of trees throughout the city, which has been declared a “Tree City USA” to minimize the removal of protected trees, and to require compensation for the loss of protected trees in all stages of maturity on public and private property in order to preserve the quality of life in the city well into the future.
