Will my tree have to be removed in order for the sidewalk to be repaired?

The City recognizes the benefits of preserving mature street trees in the neighborhood. In the interest of preserving as many trees as possible, the City will perform an exhaustive inspection of all the trees affected by this project to see what options are available. In many cases, the repair of a sidewalk or curb can be done by cutting a few roots from the tree. Trees that are known to have very shallow root systems and are notorious for damaging concrete improvements will likely be replaced with trees of a different species. A list of all trees proposed to be replaced will be made available on this website prior to construction. If you have any concerns about the proposed replacement of a tree, please contact the project manager (see "Who can I contact...").
