MARQUETTE — The Marquette City Police Department is reminding all Marquette city residents that the use of tree hammocks is prohibited.

The ban is in response to numerous trees being damaged from the use of hammocks.

The ordinance states; unless specifically authorized by the City of Marquette Arborist, no person shall intentionally damage, cut, carve, attach any ropes, wires, nails, or other contrivance to any tree.
