urban and community forest is a defining and valued characteristic of the city of Ann Arbor, which residents affectionately 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 and on public lands and parks.

A significant backlog of tree maintenance requests currently exists due to a host of factors including the tremendous resources requited to fight the emerald ash borer, the financial downturn of 2008 and only the recent increase of funding for additional forestry activity (Forestry's street tree operations budget in fiscal year 2014 is 29% less than it was in fiscal year 2007).
