Morris Tree Board

The Tree Board is composed of a five member board appointed by the Morris City Council.  The five members should be residents of the City, but members could be selected from the County by the City Council if it is in the best interest of the City.  The Public Works Director shall be an ex-officio member of the Tree Board.  The City Forester shall serve as the administrative staff to the Tree Board.  Currently the Public Works Director is the City Forester. 

The term for members is two years staggered with other members. 

The Tree Board studies, investigates, counsels, develops and administers a written plan for the care, preservation, pruning, planting, replanting, removing, or disposing of trees and shrubs, in parks, along streets and in other public areas.  The plans shall be presented to the City Council, and following the review and approval by the City Council shall constitute the official Tree Plan for the City.

The Tree Board meets the 3rd Wednesday of the Month at 4:30 p.m. in Morris City Council Chambers.
