Division of Highway Services (DHS) Manages Tree Maintenance Program

DHS has on-staff arborists who help care for the thousands of trees that are located in the County’s right-of-way. DHS inspects, prunes, removes and, most importantly, plants trees to enhance the tree canopy and ensure that the trees we have are healthy and pose no safety hazards.

From January through November of this year, DHS inspected nearly 3,200 trees, pruned about 1,750 trees, removed 600 trees and 795 stumps, and planted nearly 1,000 trees.

Residents with questions about street trees in the right-of-way can call 311 or send a request for service online
