Urban Forestry

The City of Gainesville’s Urban Forestry Division promotes the benefits of trees, maintains our urban forest to ensure diversity of age and species, mitigates canopy loss, minimizes hazards; and conserves the high-quality heritage trees that make Gainesville a Tree City USA! 

Beginning in 1983, Gainesville received the Tree City USA designation because of the combined efforts of the City Beautification Board (CBB), the Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department (PRCA) and the Florida Division of Forestry. Today, Gainesville stands proud in its 4th decade as a Tree City USA.
