Anyone doing tree work within Springfield’s corporate boundary must be licensed or employed by a licensed tree company. The City Forestry Division handles tree worker licensing. For an application and testing call (937) 525-5800 or visit the City Service Center at 2100 Lagonda Avenue.
To obtain a tree worker license, you must have proof of insurance in the amount of at least $200,000, obtain a bond for at least $2,000, pass a written examination administered by the City Forestry Division, and pay a $50 license fee, which is good for 2 years from the date of issue.
Study materials for the test may be obtained at the Service Center during the hours of 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
