The Commission’s purpose is to promote and endorse programs and policies to support, maintain and grow our urban forest, increase public education, and establish award and recognition programs as incentives to encourage a healthy, safe and attractive natural environment for the City of Wilmington.
Recognizing the need to protect and promote our urban forest, the City of Wilmington’s City Council established the Wilmington Tree Commission on April 16, 1996.
