Forestry Operations

The City of Richmond Heights Forestry Division (within the Parks Department) is charged with the management of Richmond Heights’ urban forest. Street and park trees contribute significantly to the physical makeup of our City and are one our most cherished features. Trees add to Richmond Heights’ beauty and livability. Our Urban Forestry Management Program involves the planting of new and replacement trees, the maintenance of existing trees, mainly through pruning, and the removal of trees that have died, are considered hazardous or have other non correctable problems.

The City of Richmond Heights has over 6000 trees in our City owned inventory. Trees help to improve air quality, reduce local air temperatures, and play an important role in achieving a quality living community.

For detailed information regarding planting, pruning and removal policies and schedules, and much more please review our site. For more resources, check out our Other Valuable Links page here.
