City's Response for Storm Cleanup

June 13, 2022 4:41 PM

Friends and neighbors,

I've received many calls and emails about debris and trees down in our district. The City's Urban Forestry & Streets Division has already launched a city-wide response. 

Crews will be working through evening clearing downed trees from roadways and removing fallen trees from parked cars and other private property. Once these high priority issues are resolved, crews will then move to other concerns, such as broken limbs still attached to trees.

Damage from this storm occurred throughout the city. It will take crews a long time to respond to all of these issues, especially for lower priority concerns. Complete clean up from this storm is expected to take multiple days.

How to Report Tree Damage: To report damage to a city tree in the terrace, or if a private property tree has fallen and is blocking the road or sidewalk, call the Urban Forestry office at 608-266-4816 between the hours of 7:00am and 3:00pm.

After 3:00pm, please call the non-emergency Dane County number at 608-255-2345. Dane County dispatchers will be able to relay the information to on-call Forestry personnel.

If a fallen limb or tree is on or near power lines, contact Madison Gas and Electric at 608-252-7111.

Additional details regarding the Urban Forestry response to storms can be found on the storm damage page of the Urban Forestry website


Contacts: 

Urban Forestry Department of the Streets Division, 608-266-4816

All the best,

Jael
