Program Description

  Tree Maintenance

The operating budget portion of the Tree Maintenance program provides for emergency tree maintenance services in the public rights-of-way. The program provides priority area-wide emergency tree and stump removal and pruning to ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists, minimize damage to property, and provide adequate road clearance and sign, signal, and streetlight visibility for motorists. Starting in FY07, the street tree planting function was transferred to DOT as part of the overall Tree Maintenance program.
