Planting Trees in Decorah
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.
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.
