Arbor Division

The City of Valdosta works closely with our community to find a balance between our built and natural environments. As a Tree City USA for 31 consecutive years, the Arbor Division plays an important role in these efforts so that our urban forest is attractive, healthy and diverse. In addition, research has shown that trees and landscapes can provide a wide range of benefits including economic, environmental, safety, social, and overall well-being. To learn more, visit .

The Arbor Division is responsible for planting, maintaining, and protecting trees along city streets and public property. The division works closely with the Community Development Department to review landscape plans to ensure consistency with the city's tree and landscape requirements, as well as verifies tree protection and issues Tree Removal Permits. Once construction is complete, an Arbor Division representative visits each site to verify that all plant material has been installed correctly.
