Urban Forestry

The City of Wooster maintains approximately 3,700+ shade trees in the city’s tree lawns along with the thousands of parkland and forest trees in the City. We maintain those trees throughout the year with only 1 full time Arborist and one full time laborer. These need to be maintained to keep them healthy and off of our roadways. The City of Wooster has been recognized as a “Tree City USA” for the last 42 years in a row. Our Urban Forestry crew track work orders, report on plantings and programs, research plantings and develop reports to maintain this program in good standing. The Urban Forestry staff is also responsible for the City’s landscape beds and planting along with the downtown pots and hanging baskets.
