The City of Antigo's urban forestry program involves maintenance of park, boulevard and cemetery trees. City of Antigo staff routinely plant, remove and trim trees in the city's boulevards, parks and public areas.
In addition, there is an annual Arbor Day celebration, sponsorship of tree care workshops, and additional community outreach. Many of these programs have been made possible by an urban forestry grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
For information on proper care, planting, pruning and tree selection techniques, please contact the Park and Recreation Department or stop at our office in City Hall for a free brochure.
As a recipient of the Arbor Day Foundation's Tree City USA award since 1994, the City of Antigo understands the value that trees have in an urban community. They provide shade and beauty that is important in today's society. They can also serve as a living memorial for friends and loved ones.
Preventing the spread of invasive species, such as Emerald Ash Borer will help maintain our urban forest health. Please do not move firewood, and report any concerns.
Together we will ensure the health of our urban forest for generations.
