The Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry maintains 30,000 trees along streets and in parks. Tree trimming is scheduled during winter, new trees are planted in winter and spring, trees are removed during the summer, and stump grinding is done in the fall. Firewood generated by tree removal or trimming is available to residents free of charge at the job site and at Heman Park throughout the year.
