The City’s Urban Forestry Program identifies trees as a valuable asset to our community. Street 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, creates privacy, and furnishes homes for birds.
The City conducts pruning of street trees in a 3-4 year cycle, with priority given to trees that have a greater tendency towards speedy growth, 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.
