Public Works Department
Parkway Tree Policy

On June 22, 2015 City Council amended the Parkway Tree Policy to address drought conditions. The amended policy narrows the tree selection list to a variety of drought tolerant trees. These trees have a better survivability rate given Southern California’s drought climate.

The amended Street Tree Selection Manual (STSM) is available for review. There is also a pdf index with photos of the tree selections for downloading and printing. The STSM not only includes a "menu" of appropriate trees available to residents, but also documents the common tree name, species type, minimum parkway size needed, and any other data and/or reports.
