Draft Tree Ordinance Information

May 24, 2016 

In early 2014, concerned residents attended a City Council meeting to request that the City consider enacting a tree ordinance that would apply to trees on private property (also sometimes referred to as a ‘Heritage’ tree ordinance). Currently, the City only regulates trees on City property and within the public right-of-way. The residents making the request were upset because a very large walnut tree, located on private property, was removed by the property owner. At that meeting, the City Council directed staff to look into the matter, including what other cities in the East Bay do regarding the regulation of trees on private property, and to report back to the Rules Subcommittee. Unless the City Council were to take future action to enact a Tree Ordinance, there remains no regulation of trees located on private property. No permits or permission from the City are required to trim or remove private trees. If you have any questions or wish to register your opinion on the draft ordinance, please contact Debbie Pollart, Public Works Director at 577-6020, or via email at dpollart@sanleandro.org
