Will the City remove the tree in front of my property?

In many cases, public trees can be retained during the sidewalk repair process.  Tree roots can oftentimes be pruned to accommodate sidewalk, curb, and gutter reconstruction.  The City’s Urban Forestry staff may facilitate selective root pruning on the tree’s root system.  The City will make every attempt to preserve healthy trees.  Retention and survival of public trees are a priority during repairs. The City Arborist will perform a hazard evaluation at the time of inspection and will make a determination on the tree’s condition.  The City’s Tree Ordinance Chapter 20.150 governs public tree removal in the City of Ventura.  

For questions specific to trees please call the Parks and Recreation Department Urban Forestry at (805) 652-4541.
