The City of Bay Village has an Urban Forestry Manager and two full time City Arborists responsible for assessing and maintaining trees on city property, including "street trees" on residential tree lawns.
The Tree Commission works with city staff to preserve, fortify, and improve our urban forest.
Tree Care Guidance
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service has compiled an excellent Tree Owner's Manual (PDF) with useful information on:
Installation / planting
Care and maintenance, including watering, mulching, and pruning
In 2019, Bay Village contracted with Bartlett Tree Experts to do an inventory and visual assessment of city trees. This project was completed with financial assistance from the Cuyahoga County Healthy Urban Tree Canopy Program. The assessment (PDF) will help the City prepare a maintenance and planting schedule for the more than 3,000 city trees. You can view the ArborScope interactive tree inventory map online.
