The City’s Urban Forestry Program identifies trees as a valuable asset to our community. Our publicly-owned trees (trees between the sidewalk and roadway in the public right of way) can beautify neighborhoods and increase property values. Trees can also reduce noise and air pollution, keep our homes cool in the summer, create privacy, and furnish homes for birds.
The City conducts pruning of street trees as needed, with priority given to trees that have a greater tendency towards speedy growth, and any emergency pruning for clearance or other immediate needs. Additionally, the City also conducts tree planting (and concrete removal if needed)as requested by homeowners.
