Forestry Department

The Forestry Department provides quality maintenance, preservation, and enhancement for the Village of Little Chute and its trees. This division is responsible for regulating and controlling the planting, transplanting, removal, maintenance, and protection of village trees and shrubs. The focus is to improve the Village's appearance and alleviate any unsafe conditions.

Brush Pickup Policy
Please remember that all Little Chute property owners/renters must call in their property address to the Park, Rec, & Forestry Dept at 423-3869 to have their address added to the brush chipping list.  If calling after hours, please leave a message that you have brush out and include your complete address.  When the brush pickup list is sufficient enough to send out the chipping crew, they will be sent to the addresses on the list.  If you don't call in your brush, you will not be picked up.  If you hire a company to trim and/or take down trees on your property, they are responsible for brush removal; the Village will not pickup brush trimmed by a company you hired.

Brush Pickup Rules
Place your branches curbside with the cut ends facing the same direction; stack piles neatly.  Mobile home park residents must bring their brush to the nearest Village street (streets within the mobile home park do not belong to the village).  Brush should never lie in the street or on the sidewalk.  Keep brush as straight and as long as possible.  Brush that is shorter (less than 4 ft), thorny brush, and evergreen branches need to be bundled with string, not wire.  Brush that is too short in length to bundle must be placed in a plastic yard waste bag with a yard waste sticker attached.
