Municipal Code 15.20 - “Tree Planting and Maintenance” First adopted by the City Council in 1963, Chapter 15.20 addresses City-owned trees in parks and parkways (street trees) and other developed City parcels. Key aspects of Chapter 15.20 include the application of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for pruning trees; requirements for conformance to the Master Street Tree Plan in the placement and types of trees; the Parks and Recreation Director’s authority and responsibilities related to trees; permitting requirements, and the process for review of requests for significant pruning and removal of City-owned trees. The most recent amendments were adopted by the City Council in December 2009.
