The Mission Statement of the Forestry Division: The City of Marshfield’s Forestry Division manages approximately 5,777 trees located within the parks and terraces. We promote a safe, sustainable, and healthy urban forest. We strive to enhance tree quality, increase species diversity, and maintain functionality while balancing tree aesthetics. The Forestry Division has it's own section of the city website with loads of great information about Emerald Ash Borer prevention efforts, their planting program (pictured above) and so much more. Check it out!
    As of 2020, the City of Marshfield has 335 ash trees inventoried in the city parks and terraces.  Treatment is being conducted successfully on 286 trees with the intent of saving these trees to help maintain and diversify our urban canopy. Treatment is conducted on an every other year basis using trunk injections at the base of the tree.  The remaining ash trees not being treated are scheduled for removal in the upcoming years due to concerns about overall quality, structure, size, and location.
