Urban Forestry

[click image to enlarge]

The Park Department's Forestry Division is responsible for the maintenance and care of the approximately 20,000 trees that line our city's streets and the countless trees in our parks and open spaces. The Forestry Division receives approximately 1,300 requests for tree-care each year.

The Forestry Division will remove municipal trees only if they pose a threat to public safety. Other tree duties include trimming, raising and pruning of our trees. This is one of the vehicles used to maintain our urban forest.

If you look at this as a composition with color, it is really fascinating. If you look at it as an image of equipment it makes a delightful subject (I'm a sucker for machines), photographed in a respectful way. Either (and any) way, it's a neat capture.
