Street Tree Pruning
The Village of Allouez Forestry Division will be performing minimal tree pruning of street trees this year. Due to Emerald Ash Borer infestations, section street tree pruning operation have been put on hold while village staff perform tree removal operations. The Division will continue to do street tree pruning on a request basis by homeowners as time allows. If you see a need for tree maintenance, feel free to contact the Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department so that we can schedule the work.
The Division will be performing street clearance pruning of various village street trees and privately owned trees throughout the community that have been selected by the Public Works Department prior to street reconstruction/repaving projects.
Please feel free to contact the Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department at 448-2805 if you have questions or would like to request maintenance of street trees in your neighborhood.
