Baobab Trees


The Urban Forestry Division oversees the citywide urban forest by providing regulatory supervision and management of the citywide GIS Tree Inventory and development/implementation of the Urban Forestry Master Plan. Since the inception of the City’s Tree Preservation Ordinance on June 15th, 2015, this division issues tree permits, oversees tree mitigation, conducts heritage tree evaluations, conducts tree protection barrier inspections, provides tree risk assessments and reviews plans for citywide tree selection/installations. The Division also oversees the newly created Commemorative Tree Program.
