The City of Monona maintains more than 4,500 trees in City-owned right-of-ways and terraces, plus more than 1,000 trees in our City parks. Along with our contracted forester, the City is responsible for planting, removing, and replacing these trees. Most residents of Monona have at least one right-of-tree in the terrace on their property.  If you have questions or concerns about a City-owned tree in your terrace, please contact our Public Works department at 222-2525.

To help improve Monona’s resiliency and sustainability, the City is working to address the infestation of Emerald Ash Borer in City trees. To help replace all of the infested trees that have to be removed, the City has created a Forestry Fund to raise money for new trees. To learn more, please visit the Forestry Fund page
