Tree Programs

Since 1992 Brooklyn Center has strived for and achieved designation as a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation. Brooklyn Center is proud to have been named a Tree City USA for the 22nd year!

This national award recognizes communities with effective community forestry programs. The City’s forestry programs include the following:

  • Care for and planting of park and boulevard trees; 
  • Diseased and nuisance tree removal program; 
  • Mandatory tree contractor registrations requiring certain minimums of liability insurance; 
  • Boulevard tree planting permits requiring proper placement of tree and selection of tree species; 
  • A tree ordinance specifying proper standards of care for all trees; and 
  • An Arbor Day and Month Program which travels between elementary schools in Brooklyn Center, providing teaching resources, learning activities, and an Arbor Day event to plant one or more trees.
