Landscape Management Department

Landscape Management’s goal is to improve standards of grounds care on all public space within the City of Huntsville. Landscape Management maintains the grounds in city parks, sports facilities, and rights-of-way, while promoting the highest quality of trained technicians and professionals in the fields of Turf Management, Urban Forestry, Horticulture, Irrigation, Litter Management and Herbicide Application.

 

CEMETERY

The Cemetery Department is charged with the responsibility of burials, beautification, long term care, and historic preservation for nine municipal cemeteries in the City of Huntsville.


GREEN TEAM

Founded in 1977, Green Team was originally known as the Huntsville Madison County Clean Community Office. It is a city-funded organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. Green Team is affiliated with Keep America Beautiful, Inc., a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving waste handling practices in American communities. Through this affiliation, Green Team is able to offer curricula that teach our youth how to manage the waste we produce, intelligently and responsibly.

Huntsville belongs to all of us. It is up to all of us to keep Huntsville beautiful.


URBAN FORESTRY AND HORTICULTURE

This division manages the public trees within the city as well as installing landscape plantings on public properties. Work involves taking a project from design through the installation phase and into the routine maintenance of the planting. Quite a number of seasonal plantings are changed out and managed annually by the Forestry/Horticulture staff along with managing two contract aerial tree crews. The department administers the city’s tree ordinance and guides the Tree Commission in its activities. Public education on the selection, planting and care of trees can be requested from this division. The division regularly cooperates with Huntsville Utilities in programs such as the replacement of street trees removed for power line clearance.
