The City performs tree maintenance work in various right of way (ROW) locations throughout the year to enhance the line of sight for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists. Palm trees are pruned every three to five years depending on the weight of the skirt (dried palm fronds) and the overall amount of new growth, which varies depending on the amount of rain received over the winter.
During the month of August, West Coast Arborists will be doing ROW and palm tree pruning according to the following schedule. If you have any questions please contact the General Services Department at 916-727-4770.
