The urban forest in Germantown includes all of the trees in the right-of-way, medians, in parks and on municipal, commercial and residential properties. The urban forest requires a commitment and ongoing support from city officials, the Tree Board, a well-trained staff and residents. The Tree Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Germantown Parks and Recreation office, located at 2276 West Street. Learn more about Germantown's Urban Forest.
