Plymouth City Council to Consider Tree and Shrub Ordinance

The Plymouth City Council will consider an ordinance for adoption during their meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. ET in the city council chambers, 124 N. Michigan Street in Plymouth.

The ordinance concerns cornering trees and shrubs as recommended by the Urban Forestry and Flower Committee. Several changes to wording has been made for the council’s approval. All provisions are in case a resident wants to plant, prune or remove a tree along a city street.

The ordinance states, “the city, through its city street superintendent and/or city forester and/or city parks superintendent shall have charge, custody and control of all trees and shrubs growing in any street, highway or public place in the city.” Permits must be obtained if a resident or organization wishes to plantor remove a street tree.
