Beginning July 7, city of Brookfield crews will start to pick up tree damage from the recent wind storm from residential properties.
If you have tree damage and want the City to pick up this material, call the City Highway Division, (262) 782-5029, or send an email to Highway@ci.brookfield.wi.us by July 15.
Provide your address and the date you will have all tree damage material set out for pick up. Crews will coordinate pick up of material by neighborhood for efficiency.
This work will continue through July 18.
Property owners will be required to cut up the tree damage and place it at the edge of the road for city crews to pick up. Follow the guidelines below for proper length of material and where to place it so city crews can pick it up. If the material does not meet criteria below, crews will not be able to pick it up.
*Tree trunks and branches may not be longer than 10 feet in length.
*Tree trunks and branches must be 30" diameter or less.
*Remove excess dirt and rock from stumps.

driveways to pick up material they cannot reach from the road.
*Do not place material in the roadway as it can be a hazard to motorists and others using
