The City of Lakeville employs a part-time city forester to work across City departments on a number of initiatives to improve the community forest. General tree questions can be routed to the forester who can provide guidance. At this time, private property inspections will be scheduled in advance only for epidemic-level insects and diseases including oak wilt, Dutch elm disease, and emerald ash borer. You may set up an appointment for your property by calling 952-985-2724.
