Tree Planting & Replacement
The City annually plants trees throughout city parks and within the right of way (including tree lawns)). Due to concerns with sidewalk damage caused by roots, trees have not been replaced on sidewalks unless the resident requests a tree. Trees are planted typically in the early spring to give them the best chances of surviving.
Trees in the City tree lawn area are occasionally trimmed by city crews to provide clearances for sidewalks and major thoroughfares.
Individual property owners are responsible for trimming trees located on private property which hang over sidewalks or streets.
Tree Storm Damage
The city will remove any tree or limb located in the tree lawn or right-of-way area that has been knocked down during a storm.
For questions, more information, or to report tree storm damage, please contact the Service Department at 440-943-7125.
