Forestry provides for the maintenance, trimming and reforestation of trees in parks, boulevards and other public areas as well as registration of tree contractors wishing to do business in the City. Forestry also operates programs which target residential properties such as the Diseased Tree Program and it is responsible for administration of the City's noxious weed eradication program as well as grass and weed cutting on freeway access right-of-way.

  • Continue review of tree care policy to better care for the urban forest
  • Maintain the standards of a Tree City USA community
  • Work throughout the community to maintain the Diseased Tree Program
