City and HOA Tree Ordinances

The city of Bozeman has detailed policy on the selection, planting, maintenance, removal and replacement of trees on public property – mostly meaning curbside or “boulevard” trees. In fact, our city has both a Bozeman Tree Advisory Board, and a City Forestry Department. Together they’ve created a booklet covering what you need to know about acceptable species for specific areas (including placement under power lines), explains why that list was recently whittled down a bit, and even a Cost Share Program on how you may be able to get vouchers toward the cost of new trees.
