Forestry Department

The Fargo Forestry Department manages a growing inventory of 57,000 trees found on city right-of-way. We remove trees for health and disease reasons and continually add specimens to our urban forest. We also make 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 our urban environment.

Our mission is to promote and maintain a safe, healthy and continuously progressive urban forest to benefit all residents.

Please note: We highly recommend that firewood not be moved in or out of the city as this does pose a risk to other trees.
