The Beautification and Tree Board was established with Ordinance 364 in 2007 to work toward the protection and enhancement of Millwood’s great resource of trees along City streets and in City parks.
Millwood Municipal Code (MMC) Chapter 2.52 addresses the establishment of the board and the regulations for care of the City’s trees.
A permit is required for any planting, removal, replacement or trimming of trees on or over public property. If you are planning work on trees on your yard, the permit application can be found here.
