Woodbine Tree Board
The Tree Board is a five member group appointed by the City Council, whose primary function is to provide expert advice on enhancing and maintaining our City’s trees and landscape. This group adheres to and follows the City’s adopted Tree Ordinance.
In 2005 the City completed an inventory of all city street & park trees. Any tree that is marked with a blue tag is considered a City tree. Street trees are identified by utilizing standard measures for determining rights-of-way. Park trees are those trees that are located on City property and are in a designated park area.
Woodbine has been a Tree City USA since 2004 and has received the Growth Award each year since 2007.
Woodbine has been designated a Firewise Community since November 2008.
