Tree Removal Policy & Procedures
The City is committed to protecting, planting, and caring for trees along the public right-of-way. These are trees located in the parking strip area between the curb and sidewalk, in parks, and at various citywide facilities.

The City utilizes a licensed Arborist to confirm whenever tree removals are warranted and/or necessary.

Trees tagged for removal will be replaced by the City. When trees in the parking strip, in front of a residence are removed, we give the property owner the opportunity to select the replacement tree and subsequently reduce future problems with the maintenance characteristics of the tree species.
Trees are typically removed and replaced when:

They are dead, dying or diseased
They are a hazard due to their overall health and structural condition
They have approached the end of their safe and useful life expectancy
Recently, pine trees at various locations throughout the City have been removed due to age, health, and safety concerns. Some of these sites will receive replacement trees (15 gallon container size).

Locations include:
  • Canyon Trail Park
  • Casa Cerrito
  • Community Center
  • Tassajara Park
