The Residential Issues committee is working to develop a list of trees in the downtown area that could use trimming. Right now, the city has downtown on a 12-year tree-trimming cycle, even though this includes trees that could benefit from annual trimming. Some overgrown trees actually pose a safety hazard — blocking lights at night or interfering with fire escapes.

You can use this Google Map to help identify trees that need trimming. Once a list has been compiled, the Residential Issues committee will work to secure funding to trim the trees, which could end up costing around $100 per tree.

DLANC may not end up paying for all of the tree trimming. Russell Brown of the Historic Downtown BID said that they may be willing to pay for the trees within their borders.
