Trees and Sidewalks Repair Program Information

Through the Trees and Sidewalks Repair Program, the City performs free repair for qualifying sidewalks severely damaged by curbside tree roots in front of one, two, and three family homes only.

Owners of commercial properties, co-ops, condos or residential properties with four or more units do not qualify for the Trees and Sidewalks Repair Program but can request a sidewalk tree consultation with the City.

The City no longer permits root slicing or root pruning of City trees. Anyone with a sidewalk damaged by a City tree must request a sidewalk tree consultation.
