In 2016, a Certified Arborist identified that many of the trees along Dixie Highway are not a good species to have in the long-term. It was recommended that the City take a proactive approach by implementing a planned and phased tree removal and replacement project over a 5 – 7 year time frame. In 2017, the City’s Tree Board was charged with the task of developing a master plan to address this issue. They partnered with MKSK and over a period of four months, worked diligently to develop recommendations for the corridor. A draft of the plan was presented to City Council at their April 2, 2018 Council meeting and final action was taken on the plan on May 7th. The goal of the Master Tree Plan is:

  • Provide protection and to make sure the removal of all trees are conducted with proper considerations and adequate replacement program
  • Provide and maintain healthy street trees
  • Expand and improve upon the established Urban Forestry of the City
