Department Objectives

The goal of Ashwaubenon’s Urban Forestry program is to provide a safe urban forest while striving to preserve the natural beauty and benefits that trees provide our residents and visitors.  The Village of Ashwaubenon recognizes that trees not only beautify and lend value to our homes, neighborhoods, parks, and businesses, but also conserve energy, help clean the air, and provide habitat for wildlife.  Our Urban Forestry program is responsible for the design, planning, planting, and management of street trees, landscapes, greenspaces and beautification projects within the Village.  This effort seeks to maximize the environmental and psychological benefits of the urban forest, while enhancing property values and quality of life for our residents.

  • Responsible for the management of more than 8,200 street & park trees using a systematic pruning cycle
  • Ashwaubenon plants 250-300 new trees each year for future generations
  • Awarded Tree City USA status for 23 consecutive years
  • Recognized with 9 Tree City USA Growth Awards for demonstrating outstanding program enhancement

Trees located within the Village's right-of-way are property of the Village and permission from the Village is required before residents prune, remove or otherwise perform maintenance.  If you have any questions or concerns about your street trees please contact the Village Forester for assistance.
