Laurel Tree Board

The Laurel Tree Board works with the City of Laurel to plan for the care, replacement, maintenance and removal or disposition of trees and shrubs in parks, along streets and in other public areas. Meetings are held quarterly and will be announced.

The Laurel Tree Board members are appointed by the Mayor with City Council approval. 

The Laurel Tree Board coordinates an annual Arbor Day tree planting with the LCC 2nd grade class each year.  It is a fun event for the students and the Tree Board members.

In July 2021, the Laurel Tree Board applied for the Free Trees for Fall Planting grant.  This program provides 10 pre-selected tree’s, which were dispersed in the community.  On Oct. 9th, the Laurel Tree Board planted three trees in the Norris Addition, along with the LCC 3rd grade class.  We were joined by Graham Herbst, Community Forest Specialist from Omaha, who answered questions from the students. The students participated in the tree plantings.  And the biggest benefit of all is that Laurel has 10 new trees!

The Tree Board is currently working on a Community Tree Inventory, which will help to provide information on the number and types of trees in the City.  Having an inventory will help the Tree Board and the Community Forestry people down the road, for planning purposes, plus if there are any tree health issues that arise, The Community Forest personnel and the Tree Board will be able to address the issues earlier.
