Boulevard Tree Trimming

"Boulevard Trees" (trees located at the curbside or in the road right-of-way) are currently the responsibility of the abutting property owner as per City Ordinance 8-5-5.

However, due to safety concerns for larger emergency vehicles (such as fire trucks, ambulances, buses, sanitation trucks, etc.), and as a courtesy to the residents, street-side tree trimming is routinely done by the Public Works Department in the winter months with no cost to the adjoining property owners.

All trimming is performed under the direction of certified arborists to ensure trees are trimmed in a manner that protects the health of the trees as well as ensures the public's safety.
