This year the Urban Forestry Committee chose to celebrate by holding a drawing for a Japanese Lilac Tree and a self-watering Tree Gator bag at City Hall.   

Property owners within the city limits are eligible for this tree giveaway. 

Sign up dates are from March 21st thru April 17th, 2019.  The winner of the drawing will be determined at the Urban Forestry Committee Meeting on April 18th, 2019 at 8:00 a.m.  The winner will be contacted and a photo will be taken. 

The Urban Forestry Committee consists of a committee of volunteers that meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 8:00AM.  Volunteers are working to advance urban forestry in the community. This includes maintaining the City’s status as a designated “Tree City USA” and helping to educate the public on tree related issues.  Every year, the committee completes at least one activity to raise awareness around tree planting and a healthy urban forest.

 If you are interested in volunteering, please contact City Hall at (218) 732-3163.
