The Park Forestry Program was initiated in 2014 and is responsible for the management of the trees and forests in Travis County Parks. Davey Resource Group completed a Forest Management Plan for high-use areas in 18 parks in May of 2014. Implementation of the plan with an emphasis on visitor safety has been the priority of contracted tree work throughout the park system. The long-term goal is to manage the health of existing trees in the developed portions of the parks through routine assessments and maintenance, selective removal and tree planting. The program is supervised by the Park Forester.
