Storm damaged trees
The City of Ann Arbor has been getting quite a few questions from residents about what they should do and who they should call regarding storm damaged trees. Staff wanted to share this recent article from Michigan State University's Landscape Extension which addresses many concerns and questions.
Urban and Community Forestry Update
The City of Ann Arbor first adopted an Urban & Community Forest
Management Plan in 2014, recognizing the environmental, economic, and social importance of the city's tree canopy while developing strategies to maintain its health and resilience.
Now, an update to the plan
will re-engage Ann Arbor residents in envisioning the future of the urban & community forest. Together with local organizations and forestry experts, we will outline current conditions, identify new opportunities and threats, and update the set of recommendations to establish a strong foundation for the future.
Forestry is responsible for the care and management of public trees within Ann Arbor's urban forest. Forestry, along with assistance from the Elizabeth Dean Fund, provides a full spectrum of specialized forestry services.
