For the Antigo Times
The City of Antigo website has a number of links and information providing resources to our community about our urban forestry program.
The City of Antigo’s urban forestry program involves maintenance of park, boulevard and cemetery trees. There is an annual Arbor Day celebration and we have been a recipient of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree City USA award since 1994.
