Tree planting season is in full swing! Homeowner's who desire to have a boulevard tree must request a planting permit by contacting the Forestry Division or by filling out an online form. In order to plant on the boulevard and participate in the Partners in Planting reimbursement program a permit to plant trees on the public right-of-way is required.
Arbor Day: A Success!!! This year the City of Bismarck celebrated Arbor Day with the 5th Grade classes at Highland Acres Elementary School and Roosevelt Elementary School. This year, we honored Al Bortke and Steve Chuppe for their many years of service to the community of Bismarck and in appreciation for their leadership in the beautification of the Bismarck Municipal Ballpark. The 5th graders displayed their artwork, performed skits and read poetry all geared towards the importance of trees! Well-done 5th Graders and Teachers! More information...
