Forestry is part of the Development Compliance and Zoning Division. Forestry provides a wide range of services to the residents of Palm Beach Gardens. Environmental and natural areas, development, landscaping, and wildlife are all important items that distinguish the city from usual urban settings.

Forestry plays a part in preserving and protecting these natural resources, and as part of the Development Compliance and Zoning Division, is actively involved in making sure new developments follow the codes of the city to ensure the continuance of the look and feel of a "Garden City".
