Each year the City strives to prune one homes association in entirety. This means that each City tree (within 10’ of the curb and parklets) is visited once every three years to address dead wood, clearance, and structural issues. However, since all pruning is completed through the use of Contractors there is no guarantee that budgets will continually allow this. We receive bids in December and pruning begins in January. This minimizes the possibility of disease transmission as well as decreases overall cost by giving Contractors steady work during their slower season.
