City of Rochester Tree Trimming Notice

The City of Rochester will be performing street tree trimming and pruning starting in May 2016. The pruning is to provide adequate clearance over streets, sidewalks, driveways and homes, as well as, maintain the health and vigor of city trees. This pruning will be completed by Davey Tree Experts. The standards include minimum clearances of fifteen feet over streets and seven feet over sidewalks, driveways and houses. The pruning standards also require corrective pruning, repair and to report of hazardous trees that cannot be repaired.

Tree Trimming Notice

The area to be pruned this season is within the City limits and east of Stoney Creek.

Please keep streets that arborist crews are working on clear of any parked vehicles, if at all possible. Also, please do not leave parked vehicles in driveways under parkway trees while street tree pruning work is being completed.

All citizen pruning requests or comments will need to be made through the DPW (248-651-5165), since field contractor staff cannot entertain resident requests without City approval.
