The City of Savannah's Park and Tree Department schedules 70-80 tree removals a month, approximately half of which can be performed by in-house crews. Outside contractors are needed to handle the remaining amount.
The original contract was approved by Council on November 24, 2015 in the amount of $500,000.00. The total amount of this contract to date, including this modification is $1,700,000.00.
