Responsible for managing Robbinsdale’s forest resource, the Forestry Department determines the needs of City-owned trees (those growing on street rights-of-way, in parks, and on other City-owned property), then scheduling and overseeing that work. Reforestation, providing advisory assistance to citizens, reviewing new development landscape plans, and enforcing landscape-related City Code are also handled by the department.
