Trees

The Maintenance Division in conjunction with West Coast Arborists Inc., maintain street trees citywide.

The City of West Covina is currently planning the trimming of 33,000 city trees based on a 5 to 7 year trim cycle. Trimming outside of this would be based on an emergency need only. If you believe that your City owned tree is creating an emergency type situation; i.e., hanging branches, falling branches, tree or branches blocking traffic, please call (626) 939-8458.  If a large branch or tree has fallen after the hour of 5:30 pm, please contact Communications at (626) 939-8500.

The City does not remove a tree unless it is dead, dying, or causing a danger to the general public. In addition, the City does not remove or trim trees for nuisance reasons; i.e., leaves, seeds, sap falling on cars, property, or blocking view. If you would like to request a tree removal and it does not fall under the current guidelines for removal, there may be a fee required. To schedule an inspection please call (626) 939-8458. If you are calling about a private tree please contact Community Enhancement at (626) 939-8425.
