The Tree Commission was established by the Mayor and approved by the City Council in 2009.

This Commission addresses the issues caused by tree diseases and pests (such as the Emerald Ash Bore).  The Tree Commission works closely with the Parks Department and is staffed by the Streets and Parks Superintendent.  There are six members of the Tree Commission and one City Council liaison.  Duties of the Tree Commission are to update the City’s standards for removing damaged or diseased trees, determine standards for tree planting, identifying preferred species and promoting the planting and/or replacing of trees throughout the community.

Members include:

Deborah Polzin
Joanne Kaiser
Jim Knigge
Steve Fresk
Ron Kuecker
James Nelson (City Council Liaison)
