About the Board

Yakima was named a Tree City USA community in 2017. The Yakima Tree Board was established by the Yakima City Council on December 6, 2016 by Ordinance No. 2016-032. The Tree Board will be responsible for studying, investigating, developing, updating, and administering a written plan for the care, preservation, pruning, planting, replanting, removal, or disposition of trees and other plantings in City parks, along City streets, and in other City-owned public areas. The written plan, which will constitute the City’s official comprehensive tree plan, will be presented to the City Council annually.
