Emergency tree trimming is performed when branches interfere with electrical lines. If you see this, call 911.
The City trims trees planted on the parkway (area between sidewalk and curb) on a first-come-first-served basis to 311 requests. When requesting this type of service it is important to indicate why you feel the tree needs to be trimmed (i.e. it's shading the street lights, trim dead branches, trim low branches over the sidewalk or street, clear branches away from the roof or windows of the house etc.). Call 311 or submit this request on-line by entering "tree trim" in the search box.
If you've trimmed your trees and bushes, the city can dispose of this debris. Neatly pile branches neatly on the parkway or your alley. Call 311 or click here to make this request.
