Good Morning Ward 3
May 15, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am
Join me for Good Morning Ward 3 on Wednesday, May 15!
I will be joined by Ralph Sievert, Forestry Director for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, to talk about trees and tree management in our city.
The Park Board has authority to care for Minneapolis trees from our City Charter and ordinances. The Forestry Department has established a set of standard operating procedures that guide that work, including an urban forestry policy.
MPRB plants, prunes, and removes all trees on public property, including nearly 200,000 boulevard trees on 1,100 miles of streets, 400,000 park trees on more than 6,000 acres of land, and trees on other City properties, such as police and fire stations, stormwater retention ponds, and Public Works facilities.
So bring all your tree questions to GMW3 on May 15! See you there.
