Tree Trimming

GPP-2021 Corrective/Maintenance Tree Trimming
Now that DTE restoration is complete on Wayburn, Maryland, Lakepointe and Beaconsfield, the city has begun corrective trimming on city trees damaged during DTE construction. Trees will also be trimmed for sidewalk and street clearance. Oak and elm trees will be skipped and trimmed during the dormant season due to oak wilt and Dutch elm disease. 735 trees have already been trimmed. Trimming will continue on the 1100 block of Nottingham the week of September 20. To minimize any inconvenience to residents, No Parking signs will be posted one block at a time. Sav-A-Tree is the contractor doing the work; questions can be directed to City Forester, Brian Colter at (313) 822-5020.
