  • Overseeing tree maintenance of street and park trees, including permitting to plant, prune and remove trees in the public right of way of Metro maintained roads.
  • Leading the community in tree best management standards through education, engagement and tree planting. 
  • Working unilaterally with other city agencies and urban forestry stakeholders to ensure the health and vitality of Louisville’s urban forest.
