City of Parkersburg Tree Commission
What is the Tree Commission?
The City of Parkersburg Tree Commission provides the Office of the Mayor, the Public Works Department, and the City Council with guidance regarding the maintenance and growth of the City's urban tree canopy.
The Commission is responsible for public planting locations and the maintenance or removal of city trees. The City of Parkersburg Tree Commission also administers the Memorial Tree Program, which provides community members the opportunity to purchase a tree to be planted in a public park accompanied by a memorial plaque.
Through the work of the Tree Commission, the City of Parkersburg has been recognized as a Tree CITY USA for the past 24 years by the Arbor Day Foundation.
The Parkersburg Tree Commission recently completed a City Park Tree Inventory Analysis & Management Plan. This project supports the City of Parkersburg, West Virginia’s vision to promote and enhance community well-being through public tree conservation and improved forestry management practices in their City Park.
Memorial Tree Program
The Memorial Tree Program provides community members the opportunity to purchase a tree to be planted in a public park accompanied by a memorial plaque. Those wishing to purchase a tree in honor or memory of a loved one or special someone select their tree preference and planting location, helping the City maintain a diverse tree canopy.
