Tree Commission

The Tree Commission reviews and provides recommendations to the City Council on tree related issues. The Commission’s annual work plan focuses on promoting the responsible planting of trees on public property, educating the public about trees, advocating for trees within the City, and developing innovative and joint funding for projects from a variety of sources. This insures that Fife’s urban forest improves the quality of life for its citizens and that the trees will be around for future generations to enjoy.
