Winter Storm - downed Trees, branches and brush collection

December 10, 2009

Due to the heavy, wet snow Madison has many downed trees and branches. The city of Madison is asking citizens to do the following:

Street Tree - if a street tree or branch, by definition a tree planted in between the street and sidewalk, is blocking a street or sidewalk or if there is a hanging branch, please call 266-4816 to report the damage. City Forestry crews are currently responding to over 200 calls for service on damaged trees.

Private Tree - if your private tree was damaged, you may need to call a private contractor to address the damage.

Brush collection - please place the brush for collection on your property's terrace just as you would normally. City crews will attempt to collect the brush after they have completed the clean up from Tuesday's storm. The brush may not be collected immediately and we ask for everyone's patience as city crews continue to work on the clean up from this and subsequent storms.

You may also bring the brush to the Streets Yard Waste Sites. They are open Monday - Friday, 7:30a.m. - 3p.m.
East: 4602 Sycamore Ave. West: 1501 W. Badger Rd.
