City of Carmel Urban Forestry

Many property owners have questions about whose responsibility it is to maintain trees on city property, their or their neighbors’ property. Many of these frequently asked questions answer many of these concerns.


Street trees

Much of Carmel’s beauty is derived from street trees. Carmel has been recognized as a Tree City USA for many years because we are dedicated to preserving and increasing the number of tress in our community. A big part of this initiative has been our street tree program. Please see the links below for information on the urban forestry committee and our street tree program.
