Planting Trees in Decorah
For advice about tree planting or care, call Tree Board member Roger Timp, 382-5913.
You need a permit from the City Forester to plant a tree in the right-of-way within six feet of any street or road in the City of Decorah. The reason is to avoid hazards for motorists and damage to underground service facilities.
Call 382-3810 to contact the City Forester, Drew Stevenson.
Before digging, you must contact IOWA ONE CALL at 1-800-292-8989 to find out whether there are underground service facilities on the site you choose. The City Forester can help you do this.
