The City of Victoria will be trimming boulevard trees over the next month in City neighborhoods.

The City of Victoria will be trimming boulevard trees over the next month in neighborhoods in the City.

Trimming or pruning boulevard trees is necessary to promote the growth of trees, provide tree structure, remove branches that can hit large vehicles and cause interference with sidewalks.

The City will be:

  • Removing dead or dying branches injured by disease, severe insect infestation, animals, storms, or other adverse mechanical damage.
  • Removing branches that rub together.
  • Removing branch stubs
  • To help control plant size and shape
  • Removing unwanted branches, waterspouts, suckers, and undesirable fruiting structures that detract from plant appearance

Prune to protect people and property:

  • Prune out weak or narrow-angled tree branches that overhang parking areas, and sidewalks – anyplace falling limbs could injure people or damage property
  • Eliminate branches that interfere with street lights, traffic signals, and vehicles.
  • Prune branches that obscure vision at intersections
  • For security purposes, prune shrubs or tree branches that obscure the entry to your home

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the City of Victoria at 952-443-4210.
