The Forestry Division manages Round Rock’s urban forest with a focus on education, tree planting, tree preservation, tree care and enforcement. In addition, brush recycling is handled by this division at the Recycling Center. Residents can dispose of brush and used Christmas trees that are ground into mulch. The mulch is used in city parks and free mulch is available, free, to Round Rock residents.
