Tree Trimming and Brush

Tree Trimming / Brush

The Forestry Department maintains the trees on the boulevards and in the parks. This maintenance includes pruning and trimming which is done in the winter months when trees are dormant.   Tree trimming is done to maintain adequate street and sidewalk clearance, to remove dead and broken branches, and to allow for clearance for buildings and street signs.

We ask that homeowners do not trim the boulevard trees. It is best to call our office and ask for a trimming request, it is safer for the homeowner and for the trees, as improper pruning cuts can lead to wounding that harms the trees.

Commercial contractors cannot trim or prune public property trees unless specifically authorized by the City.

Brush is accepted at the landfill year round at no charge to residents.
