For Certified PCFs


Here are tools/resources for your Citizen Forester work:


  • FIELD WORK REPORTING FORM – Please enter any PCF work you do in this simple form, so we can track the impact you’re having on our city’s trees!!!


This is the suggested template for notifying/requesting permission from residents/business owners in order to perform maintenance on the trees in front of their properties (you may also rely on verbal permission). Please use your discretion in this area, and remember that you are acting as ambassadors of the City and the urban tree community–the goal is to engage people in a positive way. Always avoid confrontation, and if in doubt move on (there are plenty of trees that need pruning in the city!
