City of Waterloo Forestry

Our DPW & Parks cares for over 10,000 trees on our city streets and our park properties.  They prune trees to maintain healthy structure, remove trees that are dying or diseased, and plant new trees for future generations to enjoy.

If you have a concern about a tree in the street right of way (between the street and the sidewalk) or in a City park or City owned property, please contact us at 920-478-3025 or email at

If a tree is marked with an orange X, the tree is scheduled for removal.  If a tree is marked with a green X, the tree has been noted by the Forestry Department as having been infected with the Emerald Ash Borer, and is scheduled for removal.  

Emerald Ash Borer in Firemen's Park

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has been found in Firemen's Park and has sadly infected over 50 Ash Trees in Firemen's Park. EAB only affects the Ash Family of trees and only those infected and dying will be removed.  All trees have been thoroughly inspected to ensure the removal of a healthy tree does not occur. The Waterloo Parks Department does not believe in the removal of healthy trees and does not condone any such act.

For more information on EAB, please check out the following website:

As we remove trees, new trees will be planted over the next few years to replace the trees lost to the EAB.
