Public Tree Removal
||Things To Do
||Arts & Gardens
Saint Paul is annually inspected for trees in need of removal for various reasons. Saint Paul Forestry removes trees on public boulevards, parklands, golf courses, and other public spaces. Trees that are removed will generally fall into one of the following categories:
- Dead, dying, or declining
- Dangerous or hazardous structure
- Invasive species
Trees marked for removal display a red ring at chest height and a number (i.e., the diameter of the tree). Generally, inspectors begin marking trees for removal in May, and the trees are removed all throughout the year based. If necessary, the street will be labeled with "No Parking" signs 24 hours in advance of the removal.
For more information or for questions regarding trees marked for removal, contact Saint Paul Forestry at 651-632-5129. Please be ready to supply an address or distinct location for the tree in question.
