City of Grosse Pointe Urban Forestry Commission Mission Statement
The Commission shall be responsible for making recommendations regarding City policies related to urban forestry and arboriculture. It shall be the responsibility of the Commission to study, investigate, counsel, and develop and/or update a written urban forestry master plan for the care, preservation, pruning, planting, replanting, removal or disposition of trees and shrubs in parks, along streets and in other public areas. The Commission, when requested by the City Council, shall consider, investigate, make findings, report and make recommendations upon any matter coming within its scope of work.


The City of Grosse Pointe Urban Forestry Commission, established in January 2017, has made increased tree planting its highest priority. More trees will restore our tree canopy, enhance our quality of life through biodiversity, and increase property values.  Click Here to view a printable brochure.
