RedOak_WursterPark.JPG ​Ann Arbor's urban and community forest is a defining and valued characteristic of the city of Ann Arbor, which residents aff​ectionately call “ Tree Town,” helping make it a desirable place to live, work and play. Ann Arbor’s publicly-managed urban and community forest provides approximately $4.6 million in benefits each year to the city and its residents. Public Works is charged with maintaining the trees, shrubs and woody vegetation growing along city streets. 

For more information about the forestry program, including street tree planting and care please visit the Forestry webpage
