Tree Planting & Requests

Thank you for your interest in trees!

Whether you want to plant street trees in front of your home or donate a tree to the city, the Oconomowoc Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department has several options for planting trees.

The Forestry Division typically plants in the spring and the fall.
Street tree planting locations will be marked with pink Parks and Forestry flags.
