  2. Removal of City trees that are dead in the public right-of-way.
  3. 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.

Chula Vista Urban Forest Tree List

The City of Chula Vista promotes the planting of the right tree in the right place for spatial definition and the abundant benefits which the City’s urban forest provides. Chula Vista Municipal Code Chapter 12.32 contains the City’s Tree Ordinance and specifies which trees cannot be planted in the City. View list of trees approved for planting in Chula Vista.
