Tree Rules and Regulations

The public is encouraged to inquire about the condition of a tree by calling a member of the Tree Commission or preferably the Public Service Director.  In some cases, the City’s Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry, Urban Forester Consultant may be asked to inspect and provide a written evaluation of a tree. Occasionally, the Tree Commission as a whole will be asked to vote on a recommended action. Residents will be contacted about decisions.
