The Urban Forestry Program consists of a seven-member volunteer board made up of urban forestry professionals dedicated to serving the citizens of Anderson by overseeing the general health and maintenance of Anderson's green infrastructure.
Their mission is to promote and improve the condition of Anderson’s urban forest through public education concerning proper maintenance, increasing the current population, maintaining all existing trees, and eliminating any hazardous situations.
They will routinely address street tree concerns and conflicts; oversee the tree service licensing program; review landscape plans for new development; and conduct educational events and seminars to increase the community's knowledge and understanding of the value of a healthy urban forest.
Meets the second Monday of each month at 3:15 p.m. at the Geater Center, 1611 Chase St.
To contact any of the members, please call the main office of the Parks and Recreation Department at (765) 648-6858.
*For Emergency Assistance with a Hazardous Tree condition requiring immediate attention, please contact the street department. (765) 648-6445
