The City's contractor for tree trimming, removal and stumping is J.H. Hart. All City tree requests are evaluated by 1 of 2 City certified arborists. Please call the Department of Public Service at (248) 246-3300 to have a work order generated for tree(s) on City property to be evaluated for trimming and/or removal.
