City Forestry is working to identify and prioritize downed and damaged city trees and trees in the public right of way. They are focusing first on trees blocking the public right of way or that pose a danger to the public. Please be patient as they work to address all of the requests. It may take several weeks, depending on the number of downed trees and debris reported.

Please Note: downed trees on private property are the responsibility of the owner. Contact home insurance or a private tree removal company. The City will NOT respond unless there is a threat to life safety/power line involved.
