Tree Board

The Angola Tree Board is made up of four members serving the community to better the urban forest of the city. The current Board members are: 

  • Rita SmithLeaves
  • Paul Beckwith
  • Jim Shearer
  • Aaron Miller
  • Ryan Stellhorn

The Angola Tree Board, along with the Angola Parks & Recreation Department serve various needs for the City. The majority of their funds are spent on removal of dead and/or dangerous trees within the city's right-of-way. Funds are also spent to reforest the city's urban forest through programs like the City-Wide Tree Give-Away. The Tree Board also educates the public through their Arbor Day activities which include the Plant-An-Oak program for elementary children. The Board has also assisted in acquiring land to protect urban forests such as "Marion's Woods" located on Calvary Lane in Angola. Funds raised by the Angola Tree Board assisted ACRES Land Trust in the purchase and protection of this beautiful urban forest.  

If you are aware of a dead or dangerous tree, located within the City of Angola's right-of-way, please contact the Angola Parks & Recreation. They will assess the danger and remove or trim trees as needed. Also for any other questions regarding trees, tree care or programs, give us a call at (260)665-1588.
