Forestry

The mission of the City of Oconto Forestry Committee with the Park and Recreation Department and Public Works Department is to manage the urban forest to enhance the current and future environmental quality, safety and aesthetics for the benefit of our community.

This management plan has been written due to the pending infestation of the emerald ash borer, an insect that has killed over 20 million trees in neighboring states and has now been discovered in numerous counties in Wisconsin.
