Forestry Hero

Forestry Department

The Fargo Forestry Department manages a growing inventory of over 60,000 trees found on City right-of-way. Trees are removed for health and disease reasons and the department continually adds specimens to the urban forest. The department also makes sure requirements for tree establishment in new developments, per Land Development Code, are met and conduct tree maintenance in other parts of town. Additionally, street trees are routinely pruned to help better fit in the urban environment.

The Forestry Department's mission is to promote and maintain a safe, healthy and continuously progressive urban forest to benefit all residents.

Note: It is highly recommend that firewood not be moved in or out of the City as this poses a risk to other trees.
