Tree Trimming Program

Workers Trimming TreesThis program provides tree trimming in all non-professionally landscaped/maintained medians, cul-de-sacs, and City right-of-ways.  This crew also removes vegetation interfering with regulatory signs, fire hydrants, catch basins, street signs, and any other obstructions impacting the safety of motor vehicles or the traveling public. 

Their work is confined only to the right-of-way, as trees on private property that hang into the public right-of-way can be trimmed by the City up to the property line.  Code Enforcement often will notify the homeowner of trees in need of trimming, which interferes with the public right-of-way, as there is an expectation of maintenance by the property owner up to the edge of the pavement.
