Public works staff in collaboration with the Salida Tree Board have identified trees that are dead or dying, or that need to be pruned or removed to address safety concerns. All trees are located in City Right-of-Way or within City parks. The City has contracted with an ISA Certified Arborist to perform tree pruning and removals throughout the City. This work is expected to primarily occur during February and March of 2018.
Tree work will generate mulch that will be stockpiled in the t-ball parking lot located near the intersection of M Street and Sackett Avenue and will be available for public use. Rounds from logs may be stockpiled in Parkways and are available to public as well.
Property owners are encouraged to apply for a new right-of-way tree through the City’s Adopt-a-Tree program. Additional information can be found online at www.cityofsalida.com under the heading Boards and Commissions/Tree Board.
