Forestry Division

Douglas Still, City Forester

The Forestry Division of the Parks Department manages the city's 25,500 street trees and all trees in city parks and on public property. It handles more than 2,000 service requests from Providence residents each year, including dead tree removal, tree pruning, pick-up of fallen branches, and stump removal.

The Forestry Division plants trees as a partner in the Providence Neighborhood Planting Program (PNPP), with matching funds from the Mary Elizabeth Sharpe Street Tree Endowment. The PNPP plants approximately 450 trees per year throughout Providence with the help of neighborhood residents. Additionally, Forestry issues free permits to residents who wish to plant their own trees within the city right-of-way.
