Street Tree Information
The City of Fort Wayne’s urban canopy in recognized as a key element of our overall infrastructure. Our trees are one of the very few components of our infrastructure that do not depreciate over time; they actually provide an increased benefit/value as time passes.
Our urban canopy provides a plethora of benefits, many of which are tied directly to the health of our community. Learn more about the benefits that our urban canopy provides.
The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Forestry Team is responsible for maintaining this asset. Our publicly owned urban canopy is comprised of almost 50,000 street trees located along nearly 1300 miles of roadway and 20,000 trees found within our 87 parks.
