Farmington Tree Inventory Underway
Davey Resource Group Inc. is currently conducting a tree inventory of the city trees. Farmington City Council approved contracting Davey at its Feb. 1 council meeting.
A tree inventory identifies sick trees that might cause damage, determines the type and location of trees to plant to ensure proper health and diversity, improves the efficiency and effectiveness of maintenance plans, shows the benefits of our urban forest and improves the City’s ability to receive future tree grants. The inventory covers an estimated 4,000 trees.
The City received a grant from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources 2021 Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program to help pay for this inventory. The grant is for 50% of the cost of the inventory up to $8,000. The tree inventory has been on the work plan for several years and is in the Capital Improvement Program.
