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.

Hutchinson has been a Tree City USA program for over 40 years.  We take great pride in our “forest on the prairie” and strive to improve and expand it through maintenance and planting activities thereby ensuring the benefits of a healthy urban forest for generations to come.
