Trees are valuable resources in rural, suburban, and urban landscapes; offering a wide range of benefits to people and their communities. Some of these benefits are visible and provide real monetary value to the community, such as storm water management, weather barriers, and increased property values. The less concrete value provided by trees, such as enhanced aesthetics and a unique sense of place are perhaps less quantifiable, but equally as important.
A strong partnership between the Public Works Department and the citizens of Red Wing is the best way to ensure the continued health and beauty of our trees today and for future generations. The Public Works Department plants new boulevard trees in the early spring and late fall - if you would like to request a tree for your street contact the Public Works Department at 651-385-3674.
