The Marietta City Tree Commission's activities are guided by two documents. The Commission shall make and adopt all rules and regulations deemed by it to be necessary to provide the proper planting, care, removal or replacement of trees in the public rights of way or on the public grounds of the City.

The Rules and Regulations describe standards and practices that must be applied for work involving city trees.
The Policies and Procedures describe general policies the Tree Commission follows to manage the City's Urban Forest.
Copies of these documents and appendices are provided in pdf format.
