City Tree Board                                         
In January of 2009, the Livingston City Commission created City Tree Board to act as an advisory board for the City of Livingston Commission. It is the responsibility of the City Tree Board to study, investigate, counsel, develop and administer a written plan for the care, preservation, pruning, planting, replanting, removal, or disposition of trees and shrubs in parks, along streets, and in other public areas. 

The board consists of nine (9) members who are residents of this City or who live within two (2) miles thereof, who shall be appointed by the Chairman with the approval of the Commission. The members shall come from different interest groups including homeowners, tree professionals, the street department, the parks and recreation department, and the City government. In November of 2020, the City Commission voted to reduce the term from 4 years to 3 years.
