The Canton Tree Commission shall consist of five commissioners who shall be appointed by the Mayor.
Members shall be residents of the City or persons who are employed in the City. At least three members will be experienced in or have extensive knowledge of the care of trees through documented certification and/or education including training through the Ohio Department of Natural resources Division of Forestry, known as the Tree Commission Academy. All members shall be encouraged to attend the Tree Commission Academy as a condition of recommended appointment.
The Tree Commission has been created in the interest of the residents of the City to promote and protect their health, safety and welfare by adopting a comprehensive tree plan. This plan will call for proper planting of new and replacement trees, and maintaining the health and safety of existing trees within the City's urban forest. Trees can increase property values and community safety, achieve design and environmental goals of the City, reduce noise pollution, air pollution and flooding as well as improve the general quality of life in the City.
