Forestry

The City of Hutchinson’s Forestry Division has a long tradition of supporting a robust community forest which currently consists of over 13,000 public trees.

It is a model program for the MN DNR and has been awarded the Tree City USA designation for 37 years. That makes Hutchinson the 2nd longest consecutive award winner in Minnesota!

Tree USA Sign

Forestry operations are provided through the combined efforts of the Public Works and Parks Departments who prune, remove and plant trees while also providing educational outreach to local schools and civic groups.
