Up for Review Fall 2017

A healthy urban forest is essential  to maintain Tumwater’s natural beauty. By caring for and managing the trees in our community, the city not only protects the environment but provides ample benefits to those who live, work and recreate here. Some of those benefits include improvements to air quality, ground stability, scenery, and water filtration.

Because trees have such a significant impact on the community, the City of Tumwater provides guidance on selecting tree species and tree care (no topping) and requires a tree permit for removal. The Tree Board provides guidance to the City Council for tree policies and related urban forestry projects.
