Parkway Tree Trimming
During cyclic trimming established trees are trimmed to a minimum height of 14 feet over roads and driveways and 8 feet over sidewalks. This allows for safe clearance by all vehicular and pedestrian traffic. It also ensures that any signage in the parkway is clearly visible. The remaining extent of trimming includes the removal of deadwood, removal of diseased, insect infested, broken, hanging, weakly attached, or structurally unsound limbs, correction of storm damage, thinning of sucker growth, removal of limbs which interfere with utility lines, street lights or vegetation on private property and removal of limbs which conflict with other limbs.
The in-house Forestry crew also trims trees throughout the Village year round. This trimming may be due to storm events, pro-active elimination of issues observed by staff or in response to a request from residents or businesses. "Area Trimming" of larger diameter trees is done annually by a contractor on a rotating basis throughout the Village.
