The primary goal of the Forestry Division is to preserve, manage, and maintain the health of Richfield's Urban Forest. Our success in this endeavor will help provide for a better quality of life for Richfield's present and future generations. These pages will provide information about urban forest health, tree care issues, and other seasonal tree related topics.
We love our trees!
