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.
Heritage Tree Program - 2013 Deadline extended to September 15, 2013!
The Madison Parks Forestry has established the Heritage Tree Program to foster appreciation and inspire awareness of the contribution of city owned street trees and park trees to the City’s history and heritage. The program is a way for citizens to officially recognize special and significant city owned trees in the community.
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.
