City Tree Maintenance Program


The City of Hazel Park has approximately 4000 city trees to maintain. So the DPW has developed a City Tree Maintenace Program to make areas safer and manageable for now and in the future.

City Trees are any trees within the right of way. The section of land between the sidewalks and the streets.

The Department of Public Works is working with J. H. Hart Urban Forestry, one of the largest full-service urban forestry companies in the state since 1988. They are certified arborists dedicated to providing the highest-quality tree and plant health care management available.
J.H. Hart will be evaluating each City Tree for its health and integrity.
Any trees that are healthy and that can properly continue to grow within the right of way will be trimmed back.
Any trees found to be diseased, dying, or a nuisance will be taken down. If one of these trees is in front of your property, you will receive a notice that the tree is going to be removed.
Trees that are removed will then be put on a stump removal list. After the stump has been removed the DPW will restore the area with topsoil and grass seed.
Following the Tree Maintenance Program will be the Sidewalk Replacement Program.
All three of these programs take time and your cooperation.
