Parks Forestry provides tree planting, trimming and maintenance for over 100,000 trees along Madison's 700 miles of city streets. In addition, the Forestry section is responsible for hundreds of thousands of trees that are located in the City's parks, golf courses, cemetery and greenways.

Parks forestry staff are trained to follow rigid safety standards. Whether planting a new tree or cleaning up after a major wind storm, the safety of the workers, the public and property are never compromised.

Parks Forestry Section: (608) 266-4816, Monday - Friday 7am - 3pm

I Received a Door Tag? What does this mean?

As the Madison Parks Forestry section personnel are out working on the city street and terrace trees, staff will leave notification door tags alerting the homeowner or resident of the work. The "I Received a Door Tag" section will explain what type of work is being done.

Emerald Ash Borer Homeowners Toolkit

In light of the recent confirmation of EAB in some of Madison's and Dane County's surrounding communities, the City Forestry officials wanted homeowners to have as much information as possible. Check out the newly added Homeowners Toolkit to the EAB website.
