Tree Trimming Program

The Village's urban forest is pruned on a 7-year cycle with approximately 1/7th of the public trees trimmed annually to maintain good health. During the winter months the larger sized trees are pruned using a private contractor through the public bid process. The smaller trees are trimmed using Village crews.

Trees located near intersections are trimmed more regularly by Village crews for safety. If you see a public tree that concerns you, email the Village Forester or call them at 414-967-5128. Please see the Future Annual Pruning Cycle (PDF) for the annual locations of tree pruning.
