Dedicate to Relocate – Co-sponsored by the Partners of Greenfield Parks & Recreation, Inc., in cooperation with the City Engineering Department. This program was developed by Jim Smrz, past-President of the Partners and received a Wisconsin Park & Recreation Association “Silver Star” Award. How the program works… if you have a healthy tree, between 10′-25′ in height, that needs to be removed, please call us! We will evaluate if the tree(s) can be relocated and utilized within a city park. Relocation expenses will be assumed by the Department of Parks and Recreation; however, special recognition will be given to the persons who sponsor the entire or partial cost of tree relocation.
Walk In The Park – We provide walking leaders and donate event t-shirts and an item to promote a healthy lifestyle.
