Tree Services

Tree Trimming

Per the Tree Ordinance, in most cases residents are responsible for the maintenance of City trees located on their property. To trim trees, residents are required to obtain  a valid tree-trimming permit. All trimming must follow the City's trimming criteria.  

Tree Trimming Permit applications can be obtained online or in person at the Central Permit Center located on the 2nd floor of City Hall. All applications must be submitted in person on the 2nd floor of City Hall.

Tree Removal

A Tree Removal Permit is required for the removal of a City tree. If approved, a City crew, a privately hired contractor or a contractor hired by the City, may complete the removal.

The application for removal can be picked up at the Central Permit Center located on the 2nd floor of City Hall. Once approved, the tree removal permit can be issued for a fee, a portion of which goes toward the planting of a new tree elsewhere in the City.
