City of Littleton Forestry Survey

The City of Littleton takes great pride in its commitment to maintaining and enhancing the beauty and health of its urban forest. To achieve this, the city focuses on two key aspects: sustainable initiatives and arborist licenses. Sustainable initiatives play a crucial role in ensuring the long-term well-being of the urban forest. By promoting responsible tree planting, proper tree care, and efficient water management practices, the city ensures that the urban forest thrives in a sustainable manner. This involves selecting tree species suitable for the local climate, providing guidelines for proper care and maintenance, and implementing water conservation strategies to minimize waste and maximize tree health.

In addition to sustainable initiatives, the City of Littleton places a strong emphasis on the expertise and qualifications of tree care professionals through arborist licenses. Requiring arborists to obtain licenses ensures that those responsible for the care and maintenance of trees possess the necessary knowledge and skills. This promotes the health and longevity of the urban forest by ensuring that tree care services are provided by trained professionals who adhere to industry standards. Arborist licenses also serve as a regulatory measure to monitor and maintain the quality of tree care within the city, ensuring that trees are properly maintained and their well-being is prioritized.
