With a strong community of 44,798, Wauwatosa is a pleasant place to work. We’re often kept quite busy just before the Wauwatosa Beautification Committee is scheduled to come around, as competition for the annual “Yards of Distinction” award can get quite fierce. The committee does pay attention to professional improvements like fences, and residents take a lot of pride in their well-kept yards and landscapes.
Landscaping brings up a lot of questions about trees. As fence contractors, trees often concern us deeply as well. For example, we often suggest that our customers plant trees and shrubs for attractive, landscape-enhancing road noise barriers. Wauwatosa itself follows a comprehensive urban forest management plan that helps combat the spread of common tree diseases like Dutch Elm disease.

Like the rest of Milwaukee County, Wauwatosa also has to be especially careful to stay on the lookout for emerald ash borer infestations. This is a small wood borer beetle about the size of a penny. It can quickly destroy ash trees wherever it is found. The emerald ash borer often comes to our attention because it can hide in wild trees that grow along old fence rows as well as in ash trees or firewood that may be on your property. If you find an emerald ash borer infestation it’s important to get help as quickly as possible.

Since Wauwatosa maintains such a strong focus on creating an attractive community, they do require you to get a building permit before building or replacing a fence. There are many regulations governing fences in most communities. For example, Wauwatosa asks front yard fences not to exceed a height of 3 feet while allowing a 4.5 foot height in rear and side yards. You can look up additional requirements and find a building permit application here.
