Oswego is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and healthy urban forest. To further that commitment, a Tree Advisory Board is constituted to study, investigate and provide advisory opinions to the City of Oswego's Mayor, the Common Council and the Department of Public Works, Department of Code Enforcement and Community Development office on issues regarding tree planting, maintenance and preservation of trees within the city. The Tree Advisory Board mitigates all issues concerning trees in public space or on private property and offers alternative solutions to preserve and improve the City's tree inventory. The Advisory Board also maintains a list of preferred tree species to ensure diversity in size and variety in the city's tree inventory and to discourage the spread of invasive species, diseases and pests in the City's tree canopy.
Oswego enjoys its status as a designated Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Check out the link here https://www.arborday.org/programs/treecityusa/about.cfm
The Tree Advisory Board meets on the second Thursday of every month at 2:00 PM at City Hall, unless otherwise scheduled. To read the city's Tree Ordinance, click here (https://ecode360.com/7722880)."
