INTRODUCTION


The City of Poulsbo offers the Master Public Tree Plan to provide information to the community about the proper care and maintenance of its urban forest. This plan is intended for use by citizens, builders, City Staff, and utility companies for the planting and maintenance of the City’s public trees.


The development of the Master Public Tree Plan comes at a time when the City’s 5-Year Urban Forestry Strategic Plan is at its final year. The success of the strategic plans goals and objectives have built a foundation for the development and implementation of the Master Public Tree Plan.
