Due to recent budget reductions, the Urban Forestry Program is forced to limit its functions to:
- Emergency response to tree issues that pose a potential threat to the public or property.
- Removal of City trees that are dead in the public right-of-way.
- Contractual safety tree trimming to prevent future potential tree failures or right-of-way issues, as budget permits.
Planting of trees on City Property
No tree, palm, shrub, or other vegetation may be planted within
City parkways or other public right-of-ways without prior approval
from The City Arborist or the Open Space Manager. They
will approve the plant material, designate the location thereof,
and determine if root barrier is required for the species allowed.
Any questions regarding City trees, please call (619) 397-6000 or visit the Service Requests page.
