This includes the promoting of responsible planting of trees on public and private property; promoting public education and proper tree maintenance of trees; advocating trees within the city; providing for aesthetics within the city through the formulation and implementation of tree programs; developing innovative and joint funding for tree projects from a variety of sources; and providing the Mayor and the City Council with a yearly report regarding Tree Board activities.

Summer Tree Pruning City Arborist Kevin McFarland and Poulsbo Tree Board members. Join this remarkable team to learn about what summer pruning can do for your trees. Late summer is a great time to prune fruit trees as well as certain ornamental trees including dogwoods, magnolias, maples, and flowering plums and cherries. If you have always wanted to learn how to keep your trees from sending up so many suckers and waterspouts, this is the class for you. We will meet outside, rain or shine at Nelson Park. Class is free, but please pre-register by calling 360-779-9898; classes fill quickly.
