When will the Forester reply to service requests from citizens?

The foresters will respond to requests by emergency storm damage requests first, City owned tree requests second and private tree questions third. The forester will look at the service request by evaluating the tree and putting a door hanger on the residence's door with instructions or a treatment plan. The forester will call the service requester back if needed and will try to answer most requests within two weeks.
