How does the City determine if and why a parkway tree needs to be removed?

In order to remove a City parkway tree, there are several factors that go into this decision. The following are all factors for removal: overall health of the tree, tree species desirability for parkway use and future maintenance problems, size and appearance, potential for damage to hardscape, number of other trees in close proximity, safety hazards, and suitability of the location. Once the tree is removed, the stump will be ground down and the site restored with soil and grass seed.
