Lake Forest Park Tree Board

Tree Board Meetings

Tree Board meetings are generally held on the first Wednesday of each month, at 7:00 p.m. in Lake Forest Park City Hall. Meetings typically take place in the Forest Room, though the location may vary.

Tree Board meetings are now held in the hybrid format with virtual attendance via Zoom and in-person attendance at City Hall.
