Forth Worth Forestry Section Updated:01/2021

Fort Worth has promoted sound urban forestry practices since 1873, when the City charter declared it illegal to hitch a horse to a tree. The City hired its first arborist in the 1920s.

Fort Worth is the oldest and longest running Tree City USA in Texas, a designation the City first received in 1978.

The Forestry Section of the Parks and Community Services Department plays an important role in continuing Fort Worth's green legacy. Forestry plants and maintains trees, as well as gives residents the skills they need to care for the City's urban forest.

Forestry crews also ensure the safety of residents by removing hazardous limbs and trees on City property, and by responding after storms to clear debris and other hazards from City streets.
