The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) removes street trees and large branches that have fallen to the ground in front of houses, in parks, and in other public places. DPR also removes trees or branches that are blocking sidewalks or streets, as well as branches that are cracked or hanging and about to fall. Removal of trees, branches, and related debris may be delayed during a storm if the branches are not blocking streets or sidewalks.
Trees that are located along streets in front of houses will be investigated and removed if necessary. DPR also removes dead trees from parks and other public spaces.
DPR is not responsible for:
Property owners must consult with a private landscape contractor to arrange for the removal of non-City trees or tree branches. Landscape contractors are listed in the yellow pages.
Property owners are responsible for knowing whether a tree is on their property or on the City's property. Trees can appear to be growing on your property but actually be on City property. Reference your title survey to verify property lines before removing a tree or conducting any tree work on or around trees in your front yard.
