What trees does Urban Forestry work on?
We maintain trees growing on city property. That includes trees growing on street rights-of-way, in parks, and on other city properties. When a request for work on a street tree is made, staff will inspect the tree, determine if it is a city street tree, and what work is needed. If the tree is not on the right-of-way, or is not a City street tree, staff will advise you. We can't perform tree work on private property, so you would need to hire an arborist.
