Tree Trimming Schedule

GIS Street Tree Inventory

All trees located in city owned green spaces are inventoried and the City of Bowling Green has over 7,400 in public right-of-way, public parks, and green spaces.

Recommended Maintenance Categories:

Large Tree Routine Prune:  These trees require routine horticultural pruning to correct structural problems or growth patterns which would eventually obstruct traffic or interfere with utility wires or buildings.  Trees in this category are large enough to require bucket truck access or manual climbing.

Small Tree Routine Prune:  These trees require routine horticultural pruning to correct structural problems or growth patterns which would eventually obstruct traffic or interfere with utility wires or buildings.  These small-growing, mature trees that can be evaluated and pruned form the ground.

Train:  Young, large-growing trees that are still small must be pruned to correct or eliminated weak, interfering or objectionable branches in order to minimize the future maintenance requirements.

2017 Pruning Schedule:   Ward 3.  Our primary goal is to prune all trees both public rights-of-way and private trees that extend into the street that pose safety hazard and remove any diseased or dead branches.
