City Tree Program


The City of Marion's Tree Program was established to effectively manage the public's tree resources, which contribute to the aesthetic, economic, and environmental well-being of the community. All street trees (trees within the public right of way) and park trees are managed under the City's jurisdiction.

The program also serves as a source of information to help residents improve their knowledge of proper tree selection, care, and benefits in an effort to protect, preserve, and restore the urban forest canopy community-wide. This is accomplished through the leadership of the City's Tree Board. The City of Marion has been recognized since 1987 as a Tree City USA for its efforts to preserve and enhance the urban forest.
