Trees and Urban Forestry
A healthy urban forest is essential to maintain Tumwater’s natural beauty. By caring for and managing the trees in our community, the city not only protects the environment but provides ample benefits to those who live, work and recreate here.
Public Benefit of Trees
Because trees have such a significant impact on the community, the City of Tumwater provides guidance on selecting tree species and tree care (no topping) and requires a tree permit for removal. The Tree Board provides guidance to the City Council for tree policies and related urban forestry projects.
