MAINTENANCE AND PLANTING OF PARKWAY TREES <br />G -6 <br />The City Council is vitally interested in beautification of City parkways. Public <br />cooperation in helping to develop and maintain healthy and attractive trees is <br />encouraged. <br />MAINTENANCE OF PARKWAY TREES <br />The General Services Department will trim the parkway trees on a rotation <br />schedule. An effort will be made to trim the parkway trees on less than a three <br />year cycle. If the rotation trimming is completed in less than three years, more <br />frequent trimming will be done performed on certain trees and in view areas. <br />Public safety such as low branches and heavy foliage will be given priority over <br />view trimming. An effort will be made to trim parkway trees located in heavy <br />summer traffic areas during the fall and winter months. The trimming schedule <br />will be altered to avoid trimming streets with flowering street trees during their <br />blooming time. This will apply to streets having a large number of flowering <br />trees, not to one or two trees on a street. <br />TREE LIST <br />The Parks, Beaches and Recreation Commission has adopted an official tree list <br />which will be used by the General Services Department to determine species for <br />planning purposes in all new subdivisions and replacement in established <br />parkways. The list will be reviewed on an annual basis by the General Services <br />Department staff with any recommendations forwarded to the Parks, Beaches <br />and Recreation Commission. <br />STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR PLANTING PARKWAY TREES <br />General Requirements <br />A. 72 -hour notification shall be given the General Services Department prior <br />to the initial installation of parkway trees for approval of species, material <br />quality and planting supervision 24 -hour notice shall be given prior to <br />all subsequent inspections as required.
