Forestry Services is responsible for the design, planning, planting, and management of approximately 200,000 street trees, boulevards, landscapes, green spaces, and beautification projects within the City of Milwaukee.
The primary goal is to efficiently manage the urban landscape to provide a better quality of life for Milwaukee's citizens and visitors. This effort seeks to maximize the environmental and psychological benefits of the urban forest, while enhancing both landscape and property values. Forestry manages vegetation on 121.8 miles of boulevards, 57 totlots, 59 greenspaces, 20 designated municipal properties, and 20 Downtown above-ground planters. We also serve as a resource to other agencies in greenspace design, implementation and maintenance.
