Diseased Tree Service Available to Residents

If you have an oak, ash or elm tree that you have concerns about, the city has contracted with S&S tree service for free evaluation of the tree.

Tree Preservation

It is the policy of the City of Shorewood to recognize and preserve existing natural resources of the community. To better protect this natural resource Shorewood established a Tree Preservation Policy that applies to all new construction within the city. The purpose of this policy is to preserve and protect significant trees or stands of trees whose loss due to land disturbances associated with development or construction would negatively affect the character of our community.

The University of Minnesota Extension Service offers great information on all tree care.
