Additional Information

Please do not cut down or trim your city tree. If the city has removed your city tree, all efforts will be made to replace it based on tree availability. Please help us establish newly planted trees by watering them often.

If you would like to know which type of tree species is designated for your neighborhood or if you have a concern or request, please submit an online Customer Service Request form, email Public Works, or call 209-895-8060.  

We will be happy to send a crew member out to take a look at your city tree. For a list of council-approved trees, please view the Approved Tree List (PDF).
