How often are trees trimmed?

City crews will trim trees on an annual basis, typically one neighborhood at a time. Trees are also trimmed in an emergency situation. Notification of crews working in a neighborhood will take place by written notice. City-owned trees are trees planted in the public right of way, along street alleys or highway, and on City property. These trees are trimmed and, if necessary, removed without notice to property owners.
