Urban Forestry Task Force Listening Session on Wednesday, May 15

May 12, 2019 10:06 AM

The community is invited to attend a listening session and provide input to a draft report and recommendations of the Urban Forestry Task Force.

Established by Madison Common Council in 2017, the Urban Forestry Task Force reviews the City's policies, practices, programs and operations affecting trees throughout the city and makes recommendations based on available research, knowledge, and public input on how best to protect, preserve and promote a diverse, vibrant and sustainable urban forest.

Through a series of meetings over the last 18 months, the Urban Forestry Task Force developed a draft report and recommendations. The goal of this report is to provide strategies and recommendations to maintain and increase the tree canopy cover both on private and public properties, including trees within the right of way. Strategies in the draft report include how to preserve existing trees and encourage more trees on private properties.

The Urban Forestry Task Force will present the draft report and recommendations at a public meeting and listening session on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 6:00pm at Madison Water Utility (110 S. Paterson Street, Room 121). The public is invited to attend. If you are unable to attend, comments may be submitted to parks@cityofmadison.com or by calling (608) 266-4816
