Wilmington Tree Commission

 

The Wilmington Tree Commission (WTC) began in 2006 as a working group of the Wilmington Beautification Commission, an initiative of the Mayor’s Office to improve the City’s parks and urban landscapes. WTC is composed of a variety of stakeholders, including local residents, policy makers, government agency representatives, and municipal employees.

Wilmington Tree Commission seeks to engage the community in the process to establish a healthy and flourishing tree canopy in Wilmington. The group continues to address decades of deferred tree maintenance and educate leaders about the measurable benefits of trees. Trees are regulated under Chapter 46 of the City Code.
