Forestry maintains more than 46,000 trees. Our City's tree population is worth more than $75 million.
Reforestation personnel are responsible for planting trees to replace those which die or have been removed due to safety hazards.
Right-of-Way Maintenance
Forestry & Beautification cuts and maintains grass in medians and right-of-ways along major roadways. Throughout the year, more than 1,000 miles of right-of-ways and more than 130 traffic islands are mowed and edged.
