The Commission serves as an advisory group to the PP&R Director and to the City Forester. The Commission reviews development plans and assesses the impact on the urban forest. It also acts as an appeal board for right-of-way street tree permits, sponsors the Heritage Tree Program, and educates the community about urban forestry issues.
