The Salt Lake City urban forest consists of about 85,000 public trees including 63,000 street trees and 22,000 additional trees growing in parks and open spaces. These trees provide social, economic, aesthetic, and environmental benefits to the city. Salt Lake City Urban Forestry is responsible for the care and maintenance of the vibrant urban forest.

Permits are required prior to removing, pruning, or planting any tree in the public right-of-way. Please call the Urban Forestry office to determine if the tree is in the public right-of-way before performing any work.
