The Forestry Division is responsible for the trees on city property and right-of ways. Because of the highly proactive involvement of the Oakdale government in the promotion of trees, the city is a designated “Tree City USA.” Oakdale has also been recognized as a pollinator-friendly community.
The City Forester works on controlling and preventing tree diseases, and identifying hazardous trees. If you have a question about the health of your tree, email the City Forester or call 651-501-5302. The City's forester is not a certified arborist; for more intensive tree issues, please select an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist at the Arborist Search website.
Environmental Services staff preserve and enhance publicly-owned natural resources in the city, such as lakes and ponds, wooded areas, and prairies.
