Private Property Tree Removal Program

The City of Rockford has launched a new program to help address dead and dying trees on private property.

The program provides a no-interest loan, to be repaid on the resident's water bill, for the removal of trees deemed a hazard by the City's Forestry Division. The program is available for residents with an annual income under $70,000, and only for owner-occupied property. Program documents can be found below, and you can contact the City's Customer Service Center at 779-348-7300 with any questions.
