Urban Forestry

Maintaining Our Forests

The City of Missoula's Urban Forestry Division exists to maintain, enhance, and expand Missoula's urban forest. This is accomplished through tree pruning, planting, hazard removals, and assorted other cultural treatments that improve the overall condition of Missoula's urban forest and consequently the quality of life in Missoula, Montana.

Missoula's urban forest is made up trees lining streets in parks, river corridors, backyards, front yards, alleys, cemeteries, plazas, and parking lots. In 1991, Missoula established a comprehensive tree care program that provides full service to the community's urban forest.

Contact the Urban Forestry Division via email or phone (406) 552-6253. Our office is located at Park Operations, 100 Hickory St., 59801.
