The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department and the Community Forestry Advisory Board invite the public to participate in updating the City's approved street tree list. The list is sent to every resident who receives a voucher to plant on the City right of way. The list also is used to determine which tree species should be planted in new subdivisions.
Residents may send suggestions for tree species to be added to the list by February 10 to firstname.lastname@example.org or Janet Ball, Lincoln Parks and Recreation, 2740 "A" Street, Lincoln, NE. 68502. The suggestions will be presented at a February 14th public meeting of landscape and nursery professionals, Parks and Recreation staff and the Community Forestry Advisory Board. The meeting will be 2 to 4 p.m. in the conference room at the Parks and Recreation offices at 2740 "A" Street.
More information on the City's street tree program is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.
