How can I determine which trees are city trees?
Street trees are planted in two locations along city streets. Some are planted in the “landscape strip,” the open space that runs between the curb and the sidewalk. Where a landscape strip doesn’t exist, street trees are planted behind the sidewalk and are located in the front yard of the property owner. If you are unsure if a tree is a street tree, contact Public Works at (209) 895-8060 or by email at A crew member will be happy to verify your city tree.
