Why did the city cut down the tree at my house?

Many street trees in Salida were planted one hundred or more years ago. Some of these trees have outlived their normal lifespan. Such trees often described as overmature start to drop large branches. Some rot from the inside. Those trees that have been identified as potential hazards are slated for removal. If a tree is removed at your property, the Tree Board will be glad to get you on the list for a replacement. Fill out an adoption form found on this site or at the Salida Regional Library, or City Hall.
