Shade Tree Planning and Planting Guide

In coordination with the City of Janesville and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources JSTAC has produced and
distributed the Shade Tree Planning and Planting Guide for the City of Janesville.  This document provides information for the homeowner on the proper way to choose and plant a tree.  This document was funded in part by an urban forestry grant
from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Forestry Program as authorized under s.23.097, Wis Stat.

The brochure is available through the City of Janesville's website.

The Janesville Shade Tree Advisory Committee is a component of the
Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin
in support of J-STAC activities and Janesville's urban forest  
can be made directly to the Foundation.  

For donations or other information about J-STAC, the Community Foundation, or other  conservation or park related community groups, please call the Community Foundation of
Southern Wisconsin at 608-758-0883.

JTAC is NOT an official committee of the government of the City of Janesville.
